Festival darling and box-office hit, the newest crowdpleaser from Oscar-award winning director Juan José Campanella, EL CUENTO DE LAS COMADREJAS (THE WEASELS’ TALE) is a biting comedy about a group of eccentric film veterans from Argentina’s Golden Age of cinema— a beautiful starlet, an actor in the twilight of his life, a witty screenwriter, and a cunning director— who live together in a mansion. Their unusual life is turned upside down when the house becomes the target of young real estate developers, forcing the elderly inhabitants to come together and conspire to drive the couple away and keep their home. Financial gain, seduction, betrayal, and memories run amok are the elements that create the recipe for this delightful game of cat…and weasel.
