Relatos Salvajes (English: Wild Tales) is a 2014 Spanish-language black comedy anthology film that was written and directed by the Argentine filmmaker Damián Szifron.
The film, which is a co-production between Argentina and Spain, is composed of six standalone shorts with a common theme of catharsis, violence and vengeance. Four of the film’s stories were partly based on Szifron’s real-life experiences and were all planned either as thrillers or dramas.
Wild Tales is composed of six short segments: “Pasternak”, “Las ratas” (“The Rats”), “El más fuerte” (“The Strongest”), “Bombita” (“Little Bomb”), “La propuesta” (“The Proposal”), and “Hasta que la muerte nos separe” (“Till Death Do Us Part”).
Wild Tales is the most-seen Argentine film of all time and was a box-office record-holder in Argentina. Nominee for Best Foreign Language Film of the Year at the USA Academy Awards 2015; Winner of Best Film Not in the English Language at the BAFTA Awards 2016; Winner of 11 Best Categories at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences of Argentina 2014; Winner of 7 Best Categories at the Argentinean Film Critics Association Awards 2015; and plenty more wins and nominations in foreign Film Festivals and Awards.
