Carancho Trailer

Now this looks damn cool. Strand Releasing has debuted the official US theatrical trailer on Yahoo for the upcoming release of their Argentinian romantic thriller Carancho, which premiered at Cannes last year. It's also Argentina's entry into the Oscars this year and I've heard enough good things that it might have a chance, at least for a nomination. This is an incredibly well-made trailer and I'm sold based on it alone. If I knew what I was missing, I would've made sure to see it in Cannes - damn! Don't worry, it's already being remade by Hollywood. Ricardo Darin and Martina Gusman star in this must watch trailer - enjoy!

Sosa is a lawyer who haunts hospitals hoping to represent victims of traffic accidents in insurance claims. When he falls in love with an ambulance medic, he tries to leave, but his shady law firm won't let him off.

Carancho was directed by up-and-coming Argentinian filmmaker Pablo Trapero, of a few other films like Crane World, El Bonaerense and Lion's Den previously. The screenplay was co-written by Alejandro Fadel, Martín Mauregui, Santiago Mitre and Trapero. This premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last summer. It was picked up by Strand Releasing, who's bringing the film to limited theaters starting on February 11th.

I'm sure this movie is going to be great, but you sure couldn't tell from that trailer. Didn't look like a thriller at all. But I'll still see it.

I've seen this film, it's ok but nowhere near the genuis level of Ricardo Darin's 2009 film The Secret In Their Eyes.

anybody else got the vibe of Gomorrah?

Yea I saw this. I agree with some of the other comments, It's good, but not as good as The Secret in Their Eyes. I actually thought it was ironic that, two days after I saw this movie, I was involved in a pretty serious car accident. FML.
