"For pure viewing pleasure, the one wild card in the Cannes competition this year is unlikely to be beaten.”

Jay Weissberg VARIETY

 

"What drew Pedro and Agustín Almodóvar to produce Wild Tales in the off-kilter humor, in the stylish visuals and bold use of music, and in the affection for ordinary people pushed to extraordinary extremes.”

David Rooney THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

 

"Argentina’s Damián Szifron drives Wild Tales hard across its six separate episodes – his one-man portmanteau of innovative and increasingly scathing social comedy is brilliantly conceived and confidently delivered.”

SYNOPSIS

Wild Tales is made up of six separate stories. The drive for success, vertigo, competition and the inequality of the world we live in causes many people to be stressed out or depressed. Some burst. This is a film about them.
