Ricardo Darín shines in the role of State Attorney Strassero, and the incredible ruling against the argentinian military junta in 1985. A reunion with last year’s Films from South Audience Award winner!
In Argentina, 1985 we get an astonishing courtroom drama that reveals the true story behind the verdict of the Argentinian Junta that ruled from 1974 to 1981 – a period characterized by torture, violence and suppression. State attorney Julio Strassero (Ricardo Darín) was named the head of the prosecution after the junta had fallen. No one had any belief in a successful trial against the junta, but he still managed to masterfully turn the trial into a victory against repression and violence. Darín has a rare presence only the best actors in the world manage, making the film a fantastic experience. We are drawn into this suspenseful drama that won the audience award at last year’s festival.
