Carancho

Rated NR 107 minutes 2010

Actors Ricardo Darín and Maricel Álvarez lift this grim, gritty character study to the heights of walking-wounded romance, as an ambulance-chasing Buenos Aires insurance hustler named Sosa (Darín) falls in love with an emergency doctor named Luján (Álvarez) when they meet at one of that city’s numerous auto accident scenes. The sordidness of their lives — he’s in with a gang of crooked cops and officials, she’s a drug addict — only makes their affection for each other more poignant. Director Pablo Trapero doesn’t neglect the black humor of their situations, either. Screenplay by Alejandro Fadel, Martín Mauregui, Dantiago Mitre, and Trapero.
