IFFK 2009 - Film 4

Film: Bad Day to Go Fishing
Language: Spanish
Year: 2009
Director: Alvaro Brechner
IFFK Section: World Cinema
Theatre: Remya

The bitter-sweet tale of a con-man who exploits a burned-out East German wrestler and how they get into their last bout in a middle-of-nowhere South American town - Santa Maria. Shot with lots of hilarious episodes and a flash-back suspense style, the movie shows how the duo are pitted against a gutsy young woman and her strong-man boy friend. The ending is very poignant and unexpected, as the tale ends with a lesson about the almost inevitable death of fame.

Another good movie at IFFK 2009.
