If you liked Francella: Clan (Star +)

Perhaps the best interpretation of Francella: the sinister kidnapper Archimedes Puccio, in “El clan”. (Star Plus)

In the 1980s, as democracy was being restored in Argentina, many of those who participated in illegal repression found themselves unemployed: they were called “unemployed workers” and associated with common law crimes. None were as noticeable as Archimedes Pucciowhose haunting portrayal in this film by Paul Trapperbased on reality, is perhaps Francella’s finest work.

The patriarch of the Puccio family, a bourgeois clan with rugby sons, is a former intelligence agent who has chosen to devote himself to kidnapping for ransom. With a handling of suspense that borders on horror, the film details the events and the captivity of the victims in the Puccio’s own house, who continued their lives as if nothing had happened, in a kind of collective madness.

The victims were also middle-class or upper-class people, whom Puccio often lured by using his son Alex, a star rugby team, as a decoy. Between complicity and horror, the character of the young man, played by Peter Lanzani, is also another highlight of the film.

Francella and Lanzani work together with Franco Masini, Giselle Motta, Stefania Koessl and Lili Popovitch

If you have been affected by extreme weather conditions: I think of the end (Netflix)

Charlie Kaufman, screenwriter of “Want to be John Malkovich?” and “The Orchid Thief”, performed “I’m Thinking of the End”. (Netflix)

Titled in English I’m thinking of ending thingslike the canadian novel Iain Reid which it is based on, takes place mostly inside a car driving through a snowstorm. with address of Charlie Kaufmanscreenwriter of Do you want to be John Malkovich? and the orchid thiefseems to talk about everything and nothing, about the human condition that shapes the random dialogues of a couple, played by jessie loopy and jesse plemons (dog power). But, at bottom, it’s a psychological thriller, and very disturbing at that.

The young people go to her family’s house, so that she can meet her parents. The young girl’s story changes, with only one constant in mind: “I’m thinking about the end”. What happens in the house also shifts, moving from present to past in flashbacks, and the story thins out as the audience wonders if the ending will be love, life, or what else.

In this vertiginous reflection on human deficiencies and loneliness, the snowstorm is the least uncomfortable and threatening thing that the protagonists experience. Tony Colette and David Thewlis (Landscapers) offer, like Buckley and Plemons, good performances.
