Storyline

A day like any other day, in a peaceful and well guarded private neighborhood, Pedro Chazarreta is found dead. News are quickly spread: Chazarreta is not only a powerful businessman, but also the only suspect of having murdered his wife by simulating a silly domestic accident few years ago. To cover the Chazarreta's death affair, the popular newspaper "El Tribuno" calls to Nurit Iscar, aka "Betibu", a noir novels writer who has been inactive for years, only working as "ghost writer". Forced by her debts, Nurit accepts the deal and sets up at the Chazarreta's neighborhood to make a series of non fiction notes about the case of the year. Who killed Chazarreta? Is his death related to his wife's? Are the reasons of his death hidden in his past? Written by Anonymous

Great film making
16 September 2014 | by gardiecaSee all my reviews

I'm a real fan of film noir, and also fond of crime stories, so I must say a film like Betibu had to catch my attention. The film does work as a thriller, the actors are really superb, especially Mercedes Moran and Daniel Fanego, can't say the same about Jose Coronado or Alberto Amman, probably they try to do their best bus the result is not remarkable. But the main strength of the movie comes from the powerful narrative dominion director has. The characters are complicated, interesting, believable, funny,and deeply human. It's lovely watching it in Spanish, though Argentinians speak their own Spanish, and enjoy the brilliant dialog between all the characters. Highly recommended.
