Carancho, including traffic accidents and ambulances

Month and a half that arrived this Argentina film to the Spanish billboard, and a couple of weeks that was pending discuss it as it deserves ago.

Carancho tells the story of Sosa (Ricardo Darin), a lawyer who has lost his license and that to survive He works in a business that is responsible for causing car accidents for those responsible for the policy and to defraud insurers. Lujan (Martina Gusman) is a doctor of a hospital located somewhere in Buenos Aires. Sosa and Luján one day be found …

In Argentina over 8,000 people die each year in traffic accidents, and more than 120,000 injured. Around this unfortunately there is a huge business with medical and legal expenses, compensation, … A “Carancho” is an attorney who lives by these shady business.

This film by Pablo Trapero is a strong denunciation of the unfortunate reality that there are around traffic accidents. With a powerful script and a shocking story, this film will represent Argentina in the next Oscars (or at least one of the 65 pre – selected, we’ll see if it comes to the ceremony). The film works well as a thriller, with several sequences very well planned and realistic action mounted. And there is also a love story in the background, but it’s less a story so full of realism like this. This film is available to watch here movie2k.

The two protagonists act exceptionally. Ricardo Darin we had already demonstrated many times their worth as an actor, but Martina Gusman did not know her and I must say that fits perfectly in character, difficult to interpret, it must show all the stress of overwork and little sleep with an addiction to painkillers suffering to heal pain and help keep up with work.

But despite all this, and perhaps because of its excessive hardness in the story, the film managed not to become passionate as made, for example, the splendid “the secret in their eyes” , which had the same lead actor; but certainly, it is a sign that the Argentine cinema must be taken into account. I give it a seven.
