Cimema: The Clan

Audaciously entertaining true-crime saga that will put a grin on your face of any ‘GoodFellas’ fan.

Argentine auteur Pablo Trapero recounts the astonishing true story of a seemingly normal middle-class family that trafficked in the kidnapping, ransoming and murder of the wealthy. The disappeared — los desaparecidos — are words that carry special resonance in Argentina.

Long associated with the crimes of the military junta of the 1970’s, the term takes on a different, but no less chilling, meaning in the hands of filmmaker Pablo Trapero. On the surface the Puccios look like most other families. Steely-eyed patriarch Arquimedes presides over a household where his wife, sons, and daughters gather for evening meals and discuss their days.

Trapero details the ordinariness of the Puccios’ domestic life while not sparing us the brutality of the kidnappings. ‘The Clan’ is a disturbing, impressive, and beautifully controlled film from a director whose work matures with each new project.
