Dog Molina

EL PERRO MOLINA

“DOG MOLINA” reflects on the decline of Antonio Molina, an outsider veteran who perceive his inability to manage his actions and therefore the result of them. In parallel with the emotional crisis that drags both the commissioner Ibanez, Natalia his partner, and all those who directly or indirectly are involved. All this enhanced by the nature of an environment where alliances and betrayals are suddenly and inexorably are the ones that determinate destinies.

Personally I could gather the testimonies of people involved in similar situations, happened in deep these suburbs or outlying villages.

The story of this film takes place in this specific scenario that conditions the characters, who come from a real tragedy that occurred in the riverside area of Quilmes decades ago, the same profile is determined by people linked to the various activities on which the film emphasizes, as from them absolutely everyone involved understand they do just the right thing.

My intention is to have a drama as an anthropological record about how it is establish and resolve certain conflicts of passionate nature in a purely criminal context and therefore hidden, but showing it from the fiction through a poetic visual language.

Synopsis

Antonio Molina is a criminal who has seen better days and who vows to uphold respect for friendship and a man’s given word no matter what. The romantic drama that unfolds between Police Chief Ibañez and his beautiful wife Natalia, who turns to prostitution against her husband’s will, thrusts Molina into the centre of a tragedy of such scale for which no one can be prepared.

    “In a geography marked by marginalization, violence and revenge; emerges a character and although he is part of this landscape offers codes of life and love, breaking corruption structures and thus can remain faithful to human values such as friendship, above all circumstances. Molina is authentic and has a constant tension to decide between good and evil, despite the complexity of the world he inhabit, manifested it in the desire and ability of redemption proposed by this film. “
