YOUNG HUNTER (EL CAZADOR)
Marco Berger, 2020, Argentina, 101 min.
Cast: Juan Pablo Cestaro, Juan Barberini, Lautaro Rodriguez
A horny teen left alone by vacationing parents may have a familiar ring but this film’s intimate treatment of a gay boy’s early sexual explorations is far more original with its mystery and mayhem mix of thriller and coming-of-age story that patiently builds to a shattering climax. Its tension-packed score and provocative visuals symbolize the vicious cycle that the protagonist gets caught up in as the film continually questions how he will solve his carnal conundrum. Through his subversive storytelling, Writer/Director Marco Berger has created a mesmerizing new treatise on the eternal hunt for love.
