Critic Reviews for Carancho (Las heridas)
Some movies are described as explosive: this is positively eardrum-perforating.
The statistic that 8,000 Argentinians die in traffic accidents every year gives his film a context, but Trapero didn't need to work quite so hard to prove it.
The film's bitterness of vision may owe as much to style as to content: this is not King Lear, it does not go deep. But a vision of sorts it is, harsh and haunting.
It's relatively effective as a thriller, but rarely welcomes the viewer into its world of legalities and despair.
Audience Reviews for Carancho (Las heridas)
A spectacular thriller, gripping, visceral and directed with an intense realism by Trapero, who uses a handheld camera and long takes to simulate a documentary style and keep the audience incredibly tense - and the last scene is fulminating, almost driving the viewers to a heart attack.
Perhaps the fall-spring relationship doesn't quite work but Carrancho is an interesting character sketch of a horrid character. How far will he go to profit at his trade?
Very well done. Interesting storyline. Rather gritty, which always attracks me. I have to say...Ricardo Darin is becoming one of my top favorite Spanish actors. Just about everything I have seen him in I have liked.
