THE PREDATOR (EL CAZADOR)

Argentina. 2020. 96 '. Fiction. VOSTF. Prohibition - 16 years old.
Director, screenplay, editing: Marco Berger
With: Juan Pablo Cestaro, Lautaro Rodríguez, Patricio Rodríguez, Juan Barberini


When his parents leave for a month in Europe, Ezéquiel, a lonely teenager, tries to have sexual experiences with boys. Although he sends clear signals, or observes them emphatically in the high school bathroom, it is still unsuccessful. He ends up meeting in a skatepark the charismatic Mono, attractive bad-boy who will offer him much more than the intimate and carnal relation which he envisages. Slowly he leads her towards a slope as exciting as it is dangerous ...

After The Roommate, Marco Berger returns with a more subversive film, very “Larry Clark”, in which we find his imprint (uninhibited voyeurism, eroticization of bodies) in the service of a real constructed story, even if it was a dark initiatory tale. , where his previous scenarios were often only pretexts for the purely sensory exploration of repressed desires and fantasies. We admire the silversmith's work to bring up through Ezequiel's a priori soft and naive gaze all the perversity that is gradually unfolding around him. A great Cornelian film coupled with a captivating moral thriller.
