Inequality, injustice and getting by in an increasingly demanding world mean stress and discomfort for many people. Some cannot take this pressure and their collar bursts. These short stories tell of these people: A betrayed lover, a confrontation with the traumatic past, escalating violence in everyday life drives the characters to the most absurd actions and sometimes reveals the liking for losing control. Wild Tales is an episode film, a genre-wise "mixed bag". The central theme is violence and retribution, and these serious issues are dealt with with a lot of black humor.
Financially successful and awarded many prizes, the film received a lot of applause and minutes of standing ovation after its screening in Cannes in 2014. The film was also well received at the Toronto Film Festival 2014 and the San Sebastián International Film Festival 2014, where it won the Audience Award for Best European Film. The film was also selected as an Argentine contribution to the Oscar. It is difficult to describe the film in a few words, but Paul Byrnes manages to reproduce the mood of the film in large parts:
“It’s an explosively funny film, made with great energy.” Paul Byrnes (Sydney Morning Herald)
