THE WEASEL’S TALE
EL CUENTO DE LAS COMADREJAS
2019, 120 min, Argentina/Spain, Dir: Juan José Campanella

Juan José Campanella’s first live-action feature since Oscar winner THE SECRET IN THEIR EYES shows the writer-director to be as adept with comedy as he is with drama. When two fans show up at the mansion where an aging actress (Graciela Borges) resides with her retinue, their flattery masks their real intent - to acquire the property for real estate development. “Enjoyably over-the-top, well-played and in some passages an homage to those acid, preposterous Ealing comedies, WEASEL’S TALE’s script cleverly pits two kinds of actors against one another - traditional movie star vs entrepreneurial whiz kid - to see who comes out on top, and the result is often sharp, funny and never dull.” - Jonathan Holland, The Hollywood Reporter.
