Four premieres for all tastes and audiences renew the local film billboard from today. A national history, marked by violence and redemption, opens the list of novelties that continues with a Polish film set in the beautiful Italian Tuscany. There is also a thriller in which a relentless hitman begins to have memory problems and, finally, an absurd comedy in which the iconic Nicolas Cage laughs a little at his life and work. We review one by one the titles that arrive today.
“Franklin. Story of a ticket” is the directorial debut of Lucas Vivo García Lagos. For his feature debut, he rewrote and adapted an original script by the Slavich brothers (“Epitafios & Sr Ávila”). A harsh story, where humanity is tamed by the urge for power and money. In the midst of so much darkness, a love story struggles to break its vicious circle in search of a second chance away from violence.
Germán Palacios and Sofía Gala Castiglione star in this story that also includes the performances of Daniel Aráoz, Joaquín Ferreira, Christian Salguero, Luis Ziembrowsky, Isabel Macedo and Luis Brandoni.
Shot in emblematic Buenos Aires locations such as the port and the neighborhood of La Boca, the film creates a raw atmosphere in which all the characters live and move in a particular underworld.
It is a film of links, framed in a context of violence and redemption. The film offers a classic film noir approach, inspired by the early works of Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino, but brought to this time and place.
“Franklin. Story of a ticket” follows in the footsteps of Correa, a former boxer, and Rosa, a prostitute. Both will try to escape from the criminal organization to which they belong, led by Bernal, a mobster involved in drug trafficking and clandestine gambling.
Unscrupulous boxing promoters, crooked cops, drug dealers and incompetent thieves will fight for survival with their destinies tied together by a blood-stained $100 bill.
That bill is all Correa needs to rebuild his life: 100 dollars to play the lottery. Everything -everything- at 48: the dead man who speaks.
