    It feels very imaginative and almost crazy but at the same time very real and sympathetic. It holds beautiful images, filming, acting and stories and develops easily and effortlessly. By far one of the best Argentinian movies.

    Szifron's Wild Tales is a colorful collection of six short stories- best when they show the worst of the human condition. Hitchcockian horror and humor with O. Henry's ironic twist endings and a touch of Almodovar - seamlessly collide - with themes of revenge , road rage and romance. The opening and closing are super - the middle sags- especially the "falling down" segment.

Never ever wanting to hear or even mention last year's oscar winning song - again - Let It Go kept running through my head during this it'a mad mad mad mad world romp. Expand

    Unpredictable, hilarious and extremely relevant! This is one of the best movies EVER made in history. Every story is so well acted and directed in a way that it is impossible not to relate to at least one of them, and to truly understand the pains that each character goes through.

    "Wild Tales" is a multi-storied vehicle written and directed by Damian Szifron.

One of the nominees for Best Foreign Film, and deservedly so, the film consists of 6 independent stories threaded together by the theme of revenge and retribution. From the tale of an angry lover whose mate has been unfaithful to the story of a citizen frustrated by government corruption and four other stories in between, these are tales woven together by a masterful story teller in the person of Senor Szifron. Superbly acted, photographed, written and directed, this film stands out as one of the most enjoyable theatrical experiences this viewer has had the pleasure of being part of in a long long time. It is no easy feat to be able to tie so many individual tales in such a way that the viewer never feels he or she is watching separate films but, instead, one large overview of the human condition and how we each cope with the circumstances that befall us. I give the film a 10 4 s and urge all who can to make it a must-see on their movie list.. Expand

    Grudges, minor insults and found-out flirtations lead to mayhem and murder on a cataclysmic scale.
