65th LONDON FILM FESTIVAL (6th - 17th October 2021) DAY 8

Every day (from October 6th to October 17th) I will be selecting the London Film Festival choices you have a chance to get tickets for and the movies you are unlikely to see in London very soon unless you go to see them at the Festival. Here is the LFF's main website for the general information you need. Don't worry if some of the recommended films are sold out by the time you read this as there are always some tickets on offer which go on sale 30 minutes before each screening. Here is all the information you need about the best way to get tickets.

This film also screens at Curzon Soho on October 13th. Full details here.

BFI review:

Yvan De Wiel has recently arrived in Buenos Aires with his elegant wife Inés. It’s 1980 and the military dictatorship is consolidating its grip on the country through terror, intimidation and forced disappearances. His predecessor René is nowhere to be seen – perhaps himself disappeared – and Yvan must tread a careful path to balance the interests of his wealthy clients with a perilous political situation. Co-written with Mariano Llinás (La Flor), writer-director Andreas Fontana delivers a nuanced, atmospheric political thriller with a clear nod to Conrad’s Heart of Darkness, capturing the murkiness and danger of the world Yvan does business in, where polished exteriors mask illicit and often deadly practices. Fabrizio Rongione excels as the elusive Yvan, a man who cannot afford to give too much away.
