After 40 years of living in a mansion with her husband, Pedro, and his two friends, Martin and Noberto, Mara is at her wits’ end. Fed up with their daily taunts, endless games of pool, and constant gunfire, Mara has come to dislike the men she used to see as family. In their primes, each member of this unconventional household worked together in the Golden Age of Argentinian cinema, playing enormous roles in one another’s successes. Martin was a renowned screenwriter, Noberto was a celebrated director, Pedro was an actor, and Mara was a star. Now, surrounded by relics of her past in a home that feels more like a prison, Mara is desperate for a change. Enter Francisco and Barbara, a mysterious couple who end up at the mansion on a quiet afternoon, seemingly lost and looking for directions. But as their devious true intentions are revealed, our eccentric cast of characters is swept up into a plot of mystery, mayhem, and murder. An homage to the 1976 Argentine cult classic, “Yesterday’s Guys Used No Arsenic,” THE WEASEL’S TALE is a wickedly clever adaptation. A delightful blend of dark comedy and psychological thriller, this film will have you laughing on the edge of your seat. (In Spanish with subtitles) — G.S.
