Carancho by Pablo Trapero( Visual )

22 deaths a day, 683 a month, over 8,000 a year, 100,000 over the last decade. In Argentina, traffic accidents are decimating those 35 and under. Festering beneath Argentina's crime-plagued, class-divided society is the quasi-lawless realm of motor vehicle accidents and their aftermath. Sosa is an ambulance-chasing lawyer. He's lost his license, so now he works the late-night streets of Buenos Aires, signing up injured clients for a predatory firm that will pay them perhaps a quarter, or a fifth, of what the insurance companies pay. Luján is an overworked young doctor who takes ambulance shifts for extra money. Her level of sleeplessness and chemical intake renders her less than desirable for performing emergency life-and-death surgery, but to Sosa Luján seems to be a ministering angel who can redeem his sleazoid existence. While Luján and Sosa can fall in love, the more vital question is can they escape the grim logic of their situation, evade responsibility for their own actions, and outrun a machine determined to destroy them?

Two of the greatest talents in modern Spanish cinema - Ricardo Darin (Wild Tales) and Javier Camara (Living Is Easy With Eyes Closed) - take centre stage in the multi award-winning new film from Cesc Gay, the director of 2014's A Gun In Each Hand. A smash hit success in its home nations, TRUMAN is a funny, heartfelt portrait of friendship, and life's unexpected ups and downs. When theatre actor Julián (Darín) receives an unexpected visit from his childhood friend Tomás (Cámara), the encounter is bittersweet. This reunion is their first meeting in many years, triggered by Julian's failing health. Tomas is baffled by his friend's decision to forgo treatment and instead focus on putting his affairs in order: distributing possessions, reconciling past disputes, and, most importantly, finding a home for his beloved Boxer, Truman. It's this task that is causing Julián the greatest concern. With characteristic understatement and sensitivity, Gay finds great dignity and humour in ordinary lives, delivering a witty, moving and hugely entertaining reflection on human connection, and a reminder that the best friendships are, indeed, forever
