Let’s Get Your Third Oscar, Argentina!

Wild Tales Trailer

Wild Tales Trailer

Although several countries in Latin America have been Oscar-nominated for Best Foreign Film in the past, Argentina is the only country to win the prize. And this year, Argentina could take home its third Oscar with “Wild Tales”.

It took its first Oscar in the year 1985 with the movie “The Official Story”, which tells the story of a history professor married to a soldier during the last civil-military dictatorship in Argentina. The story touches on important points that defined Argentina’s “dirty war”, one of the most violent periods of the country’s history. Critics on Rotten Tomatoes have given “The Official Story” a 100% rating.

An extra fact about the period of the dirty war: the grandmothers of the missing boys (“desaparecidos”) from that time are still searching for their grandchildren and protesting to find their whereabouts. They have formed a human rights organization called “Las abuelas de la plaza mayo” (The Grandmothers of Plaza Mayo).

The second Argentinean film that won the Oscar was “The Secret in Their Eyes” in 2009. This drama-suspense movie tells the story of a retired court officer who decides to write a novel about an assassination that occurred in 1974. Critics on Rotten Tomatoes gave the movie a 91% rating.

“Wild Tales” has also achieved a 91% rating by critics on Rotten Tomatoes. Let’s hope that Argentina take home its third Oscar. If you want to know what “Wild Tales” is about, here is the trailer:
