An ill-advised love affair surrounded by the difficulties of immigration
LIGHTNING RELEASES: MIAMI, Florida (3/21/2014)– ViendoMovies, the 24 hour commercial free film channel owned and distributed by SOMOSTV, will air the award winning romantic thriller “Rabia” (Rage) in the month of March. The movie tells the story of a construction worker in hiding for killing his foreman and hides in the mansion where his girlfriend works as a maid. It has received awards from the Guadalajara Film Festival such as “Best Cinematography”, as well as “Best Film”, “Best Supporting Actor”, “Best Cinematography” and “Best Actor” from the Malaga Spanish Film Festival.
In this film, hiding in the abandoned attic, Jose Maria starts living a secret life between ghost and “voyeur”, he hears and sees everything. He is conscious of the risk he runs every day in being found; he steals food at night to survive and his only companion are the rats of the house. From the shadows, he becomes the only witness to the sad and lonely lives of the Torres family, also witnessing Rosa’s daily work life. Rosa is loved by the family, but is also victim to various verbal and physical abuses. Without being able to do anything, Jose Maria observes everything as his rages grows.
The film’s director, Sebastian Cordero, turned this misguided love affair into a story of masculine obsession and class oppression. Cordero takes a less obvious approach and creates the film to shed light on the struggle between illegal immigrants and the upper-class families who employ, and often exploit, them.
“Rabia” has obtained recognition and has been presented in events such as the Toronto International Film Festival, Tokyo International Film Festival and the Palm Springs Film Festival.
Adding this collection of films to ViendoMovies’ March programming showcases the company’s commitment to its mission; bringing their audience only the best originally produced Spanish language cinema from across Latin America.
