Carancho: A Good One #39

A lawyer and a doctor become involved amongst car crashes and insurance scams in this thriller from Argentina. Hand-held camerawork gives a cinema-verite feel. The warm ochres and cool aquas of the cinematography are quite beautiful. The overall look of the film, the effective use of foreshadowing, and the gritty sets are reminiscent of early 70's New Hollywood films. Martina Gusman gives a tough and caring performance as the doctor. Now playing at the Cleveland International Film Festival.
