The prolific Cohn-Duprat and their good cinema

This time the duo took a popular discussion topic that leads us to reflection.

As we have already mentioned in previous notes, the work of Gastón Duprat and Mariano Cohn has been a lot and good, from “The Artist” (2006), to “El Hombre de al Lado” (2008) and “El Ciudadano Ilustre” (2016). They have worked in direction/production duo, with support in the scripts of Andrés Duprat, Gastón's brother.

Until last year with  “Mi Obra Maestra ” they resolved that Gastón focused on the direction and Mariano production, always with good results.

With “ 4X4 ” the roles were reversed, Mariano put on the director's suit and Gastón supported him from production, with a script of both. And again a more than interesting movie.

As we can see from the trailer, a thief enters an imposing van to steal and gets trapped. As usually happens in the duo's films, it takes a topic of popular discussion (as they did with politics, the valuation of art, etc.), taking it to levels of reflection, discussion and even, in this case, questioning the viewer with some posture.

Interestingly, much of the film is inside the van, but I wouldn't say it's an intimate film. Peter Lanzani, increasingly consolidated, composes a very credible “jet”, accompanied in key roles by two acquaintances from the house Cohn-Duprat, Dady Brieva and  Luis Brandoni. 

Insecurity is a topic that has us all wrong, but when treated with talent it is worth consuming history and going around the cinema.

Rating: 0/5.
