LION'S DEN

LION'S DEN

FILM CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE
RETURN
One of the most acclaimed films at the Cannes Film Festival in 2008, 'Lion's Den' is Argentine filmmaker Pablo Trapero's ('White Elephant', 'The Clan') fifth feature. In the hazy morning after a threesome, expectant mother Julia Zárate (Martina Gusman) finds her partner dead in her flat, and his fling, Ramiro (Rodrigo Santoro), badly injured. Police arrive on the scene and promptly throw Julia behind bars, where she awaits trial. As her pregnancy progresses, Julia sinks into a deep depression. But she sheds her quiet, defeated demeanour when the eventual birth of her son, Tomás (Tomás Plotinsky), gives her a reason to live. 'Lion's Den' is a remarkable study of motherhood in the most extreme circumstances and once again confirms Pablo Trapero's position as one of world cinema's finest filmmakers. ★★★★ "Militantly unsentimental" - David Jenkins, Time Out ★★★★ "It has the desperate vitality of something barely made-up" - Tim Robey, The Telegraph ★★★★★ "An unqualified success" - Jason Wood, Little White Lies
