Movie Info

Argentine actor/filmmaker Adolfo Aristarain, best known to American audiences for his political dramas and musicals, wanders the white corridors of medicine. Aristarain's protagonist is an insignificant worker in a huge plant run by corrupt management. When the worker is injured in an accident, he decides to get even with his bosses. He fakes a complete loss of speech, hoping to simultaneously collect a huge insurance settlement and awaken the outside world to the safety hazards plaguing the plant. More laudable for its intentions than its execution, Time for Revenge (Tiempo de Revancha) nonetheless won a prize at the Montreal World Film Festival. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Tiempo de revancha (Time for Revenge)


As any other country in the times of a dictatorial regime, Argentina was ruled by fear. This masterpiece cleverly conveys all its messages through simbolism, the censors were unaware or simply couldn't do anything about it. The price of silence when you decide to go against the establishment. There's one scene that reminds Coppola's "the conversation" and the ending is so visually powerful and unexpected that it could have been thought out by the partnership Buñuel-Dalí
