"CALZONES ROTOS" Chile / Director: Arnaldo Valsecchi / Spanish (English Subtitles) / 2018 / 101 mins / Dramatic Comedy / Black Humour Classification/Rating: R16 Five women live in a large hacienda in rural Chile: matriarch Matilde, her three biological daughters and an adopted one. Any resemblance to Federico García Lorca’s “The House of Bernarda Alba,” however, ends there. On her deathbed, Matilde confesses to the village priest that she killed her husband 40 years ago and buried him inside a chest in the garage …a chest that contained another body. The news shocks the entire household and secrets long buried will now be made public in this dark comedy.
