Wickedly hilarious and delightfully deranged, Wild Tales is a subversive satire that doubles as a uniformly entertaining anthology film.
Inequality, injustice and the demands of the world we live in cause stress and depression for many people. Some of them, however, explode. This is a movie about those people. Vulnerable in the face of a reality that shifts and suddenly turns unpredictable, the characters of Wild Tales cross the thin line that divides civilization and barbarism. A lover’s betrayal, a return to the repressed past and the violence woven into everyday encounters drive the characters to madness as they cede to the undeniable pleasure of losing control.
★★★★★ ‘a riotously entertaining collection of short stories of people losing their self-control and self-respect’. Times
★★★★★ ‘The brilliance of the film lies in its combination of excess and ordinariness’. Independent
★★★★ ‘A delicious chocolate box of nastiness’. Guardian
