Movie and discussion: Wild Tales

By placing his characters in front of a distorting mirror, the director wanted to show how absurd our behavior and uncontrolled outbursts of aggression can be. The beginnings can be inconspicuous, the end is usually a complete disaster. The director shows how this mechanism works in an unconventional, exaggerated and brutal way. By the way, it balances the whole thing with black humor.
