The Clan (18)

Argentina, Spain, 2015, 108 mins, dir. Pablo Trapero, English subtitles

The disappeared — los desaparecidos — are words that carry special resonance in Argentina. Long associated with the crimes of the military junta of the 1970s, the term takes on a different, but no less chilling, meaning in the hands of filmmaker Pablo Trapero. Based on a true story that rocked Argentina, The Clan tells the almost unbelievable tale of the Clan Puccio, a seemingly normal middle-class family who kidnapped wealthy people off the street, held the victims for ransom, and, once paid, killed them.

Trapero brings an enjoyable swagger and ferocious wit to this immensely entertaining film, which explores the nature of authoritarianism and the banality of evil; as a country and at home.
