Rojo at Real Art Ways

Skip to main content



From Argentine director Benjamín Naishtat comes a crime drama with a distinctively 1970s look, sound and vibe. 94% on Rotten Tomatoes.

In the mid-seventies, a strange man arrives in a quiet provincial city.

In a restaurant, without any apparent reason, he starts insulting Claudio, a renowned lawyer. The community supports the lawyer and the stranger is humiliated and thrown out of the place.

Later that night the stranger, who is determined to wreak a terrible vengeance, intercepts Claudio and his wife Susana.

The lawyer then takes a path of no return involving death, secrets and silences.

"Naishtat's subtle, twisting, state-of-the-nation drama works effectively as a noir-like thriller, and as an exploration of a country that has lost its moral compass."

Allan Hunter, Screen International

"Its accessibility... could turn this into Naishtat's most widely seen work to date and help consolidate his reputation as an exciting new voice in Argentinean cinema."

Boyd van Hoeij, Hollywood Reporter
