Azor12A

Directed by Andreas Fontana | Argentina | 2021 | 1h 40m | Spanish & French w/ English subtitles | Starring Fabrizio Rongione, Elli Medeiros, Stéphanie Cléau

In 1980s Argentina, a private Swiss banker arrives in military-ruled Buenos Aires to replace a colleague who has mysteriously disappeared overnight. Moving through smoke-filled lounges and luxurious pool parties, he finds himself untangling a sinister web of colonialism, high finance, and a nation’s “Dirty War”. Written in collaboration with Argentinian filmmaker Mariano Llinás (La Flor), Andreas Fontana’s assured debut is a slow-burning depiction of the uneasy interplay between wealth and power.

Reviews

‘Pure evil is all around in this unnervingly subtle, sophisticated movie; an eerie oppression in the air. It is a film that continues to echo mysteriously inside my head.’
★★★★★
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

‘The striking feature film debut from Andreas Fontana brings a prickly thriller sensibility to the closed world of high finance and a piquancy to the phrase ‘dirty money’.’
Wendy Ide, ScreenDaily

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
