85% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes
“Old-fashioned fare with an up-to-date edge…enjoyably over-the-top.” – The Hollywood Reporter
 
“A delicious metacinematic black comedy.” – El Mundo
 
“An homage to the golden age of Argentine cinema…with the irony, snappy retorts and humor of Campanella’s filmmaking.” – Claritin
 
From Juan José Campanella, the director of the Oscar Award-winning  The Secret in Their
Eyes,
  comes The Weasel’s Tale (El cuento de las comodrejas), a  comedic thriller that begins its U.S. Theatrical Premiere Run starting December 11, from Outsider Pictures and Strand Releasing. Starring  a bumper crop of well-known older Argentine actors, it won the Audience Award at the AFI Latin American and Chicago Latino Film Festivals.
The film is the story of a group of four long-time friends, including a used-to-be-famous actress, her now disabled husband and the writer of her greatest hits. They are retired from the movie business, forming an unusual family in a decaying mansion in the countryside outside of Buenos Aires. Their coexistence is menaced by a young couple who, feigning to be lost, slowly insinuate themselves into their lives. It’s Sunset Boulevard meets The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, with a Latin twist. Financial gain, seduction, betrayal, and memories run amok are the elements that create the recipe for this delightful  game of cat…and weasel.
