This wicked Argentinian thriller features powerhouse performances from Latin American titans Óscar Martínez (Distinguished Citizen, 2016) and Paulina García (Berlinale Silver Bear best actress-winner for Gloria, 2013) as it tells the story of one apparently perfect family shattered by a tragic loss.
Carla (García) and Santiago (Martínez) have built the archetype of a close-knit family over the years, but all this is put to the test when Carla’s mother is found dead at home. What was supposedly an accident is quickly shrouded by a curtain of suspicion and betrayal as the mysterious circumstances surrounding the death unfold and Carla’s father Elías becomes the main suspect. Uncertainty gives rise to accusations and betrayals that will unravel the once impeccable family unit, culminating in a shocking finale.
Absorbing from start to finish and jam packed with twists at every turn, Common Blood boasts a stellar Southamerican cast, which also includes Dolores Fonzi (Truman and Paulina, SFF16), Diego Velazquez (Wild Tales, SFF15 Closing Night), and Neruda and A Fantastic Woman star Luis Gnecco.
Please note the film will screen with English subtitles during the festival.
