Un monstruo de mil cabezas / A Monster with a Thousand Heads

by Rodrigo Plá New World View: Mexico

„A wounded animal doesn’t cry, it bites“. Sonia Bonet desperately requires access to medical care for her ill husband. The insurance company remains indifferent to her needs – a process, which seems arbitrary, a whole system, which seems corrupt – and Sonia’s despair leads to a willingness to do anything. She takes matters into her own hands and kidnaps the doctor responsible, thus catapulting both herself and her son into a spiral of violence.
Director Rodrigo Plá’s magnificent and suspenseful socio-political thriller has been one of the biggest festival hits in recent years. A biting yet poetically ironic commentary about the desperation we feel when faced with the apathetic, impenetrable monster that is bureaucracy – not just in Mexico but anywhere.
