Outdoors the solar is shining, however inside and for scripting causes it’s darkish evening and it rains. The magic of cinema, sure. A storm shakes the home in San Isidro, one of many areas chosen for Echoes of a criminal offense, the director’s new movie Christian bernard, which can be launched in theaters subsequent January 20 by Warner Bros. Footage, and which can then be obtainable on HBO Max.
On the finish of the shoot, Diego Peretti and Julieta Cardinali formalize this reunion for 9 years of their remembered characters from the primary season of In remedy, the place Julieta was Marina, the Monday affected person, and Diego the lawyer Guillermo Montes.
-In that scene on the finish, love remained pending, amongst different issues …
“That story was very well told, each character, the books were spectacular, and yes, Marina’s story with Dr. Montes generated many mice,” admits Cardinali.

-How do you expertise the reunion with a return to the set in such a special state of affairs?
Cardinali: It occurs to me that working with Diego, coming into a film the place we’re husband and spouse, figuring out one another is less complicated and quicker, as a result of there’s extra confidence. There’s a land gained, a path that you just shouldn’t have to construct as a result of it’s already constructed.
Peretti: One factor is what generates the pandemic, a standard denominator with a special variable for everybody, however working with Julieta is barbaric. Once I discovered we had been on this film collectively, we instantly began speaking.
The sound of the clapperboard indicating motion paralyzes the character of Diego, a well-known author named Julián Lemar. He and his spouse Valeria (Julieta) are right here witnesses of the bodily and psychological violence that “El sin nombre” (Diego Cremonesi) exerts on Ana (Carla quevedo).
Work with Messi
– Julieta, is having Peretti, who all the time makes successes, like having Messi in a match?
Peretti: (interrupts). Hey! I do not know if it is so …
Cardinali: Sure! As an actress, working with an actor that I like, that I like and, on this case, that I additionally love, provides me further confidence of figuring out the place you might be stepping into and what you will do, figuring out that you’ll kind of just like the outcome.
Peretti: I perceive myself completely along with her. And likewise, it appeared like a sensible selection of aesthetics with respect to the movie.

-They stated sure to a tough style, since there’s a prejudice with the thriller “made in Argentina”.
Cardinali: In the present day we had been speaking about that. I’m a spectator of style movies, I prefer to eat horror motion pictures, suspense or psychological thriller. I am not afraid of “maybe because she’s Argentine, she’s not good.” It appears to me that we have now the flexibility to work, spectacular technicians, the director is excellent and the solid can be excellent. Above after I learn the script I stated: It is nice!
Peretti: Whether it is too good! The scripts are all the time seventy-five or eighty pages, if no more, and after they let you know: “Read it to see what you think,” the opposite will not be conscious that it’s a must to learn all that earlier than deciding. On this case it’s a type of scripts that movement and catch you.
Cardinali: Do not even stand up to pee!
-What are you able to inform about your characters?
Peretti: Mine is a really profitable author, of a saga that tells the story of a serial killer of households. He suffers stress from the stress of being compelled to proceed writing and involves relaxation right here, the place he perversely learns of the household deception that surrounds him and reacts by figuring out with that character he created.
Cardinali: My character additionally works within the literary world. He comes with the household (a four-month-old child and a nine-year-old woman) to accompany him and assist him get out of that demanding second, but additionally to get him again on observe, as a result of he wants him to put in writing once more.
Peretti: That is the plot, however … the plot is way more contaminated than that. I used to be extra honest, however who’s she actually?
-From the start of the filming till the presentation of the movie there’s a lengthy pause, how do you reconnect together with your characters on the time of the premiere?
Peretti: It is true. From the time you talk about a challenge for the primary time till it’s launched not less than three years cross … I join it simply as a result of they’re robust experiences and in each film there’s an emotionality That was put into play when you had been doing it. You might be like an architect who by no means forgets how he made a constructing.
Cardinali: You bear in mind the way you filmed the film, what occurred and what your emotions had been. They’re very lengthy days of fourteen hours every single day … and now muddled!
Peretti: In fact! We are going to do not forget that! It is the film we made in a pandemic. Chinstrap rehearsals are uncommon, as a result of you may’t see your face, you may’t see your mouth … So till the scene comes out it prices extra.
-Do you could have intimate scenes?
Cardinali: No, we didn’t kiss.
Peretti: It has to do with dramatic play. Her relationship with me is that of a really attentive and supportive spouse, the place the sexual appears to be repressed. It’s a relationship that’s drawn that approach, but it surely additionally has an evidence. The film is hilarious. It is a type of motion pictures that begins and takes you to one thing else and one thing else …
Cardinali: And while you suppose you understood, you did not perceive.
Peretti: It is sort of a vicious circle that has to do with a thoughts.
Suspense to the tip
They are saying they can not inform extra. And it’s logical. However just like the director, they admit that the tradition of not spoiling is significant to sustaining the suspense of style cinema till the tip.

Bernard prefers solely to anticipate that Peretti and Cardinali lease Carola Reyna a cabin within the woods to spend their holidays. The primary evening the ability went out and, in the course of the storm, a terrified lady seems within the shadows asking for assist, she says that her husband killed her son and now he’s coming for her.
“Yes, I can say that it is a very beautiful film, very different, that’s what caught me when I read Gabriel Korenfeld’s script. It’s a Hitchcock-style psychological thriller, but it’s also a horror movie. I love the genre. fantastic, in fact my next projects have to do with that (Under your feet, a horror movie starring Natalia Oreiro), says Bernard.
-As a director, is having such a small and powerful cast an advantage or a disadvantage?
-It is a huge advantage because it is a film that seems contained with a small cast, but speaking badly and soon it is a quilombo to do it, because sixty percent takes place here inside and the remaining forty percent in forests and with car chases.
It’s an action movie, and it doesn’t stop. We even had to put together in this house a special engineering so that it rains all the time and being able to film during the day at night. We use the “American night” resource, which is no longer used, which is to film night sequences during the day with a shutter, a filter and a special colorimetry, and it is beautiful as it is.
They are old techniques that we use with ingenuity to tell this story that is a mixture of a fantastic tale with a suspense thriller, with a children’s horror story I would tell you, and he even has things from Borges.
-What do the chosen actors bring you?
-I worked with excellent actors, but I had never worked with them and they are crazy.
We worked a lot before filming, we had a three-month long pre-production and it was great to have Peretti available to improve scenes or deepen the character.
Julieta is a marvel, of absolute precision. I had seen Carla in some movies but here she does something else and she is beastly, she is a scenic animal. I always wanted to work with Cremonesi and it finally happened, he is one of the great actors and I am a fan of him. Carola Reyna has a small but precious role. I don’t want to spoil, but he ends up being an important character.
A different Carla
It is difficult to recognize Carla Quevedo, it must be said. His look is totally different from what we saw in the series Monsoon and it doesn’t have to do with his last months in Uruguay where he recorded Iosi, the repentant spy, with Daniel Burman and Sebastián Borensztein. She looks like a European newcomer to Buenos Aires.
“As an actress, the funniest factor is to see myself otherwise. Once I spoke with Cristian the primary time we stated: What will we do for Ana? And we considered this haircut to present her one thing freakier. We had references from Rosemary’s child or the woman from The fifth ingredient (Mila Jovovich) and I used to be amused. I’ve a face that modifications quite a bit based on the hair and that contributes quite a bit to every character that I do, “he says.

-Right here you play a really long-suffering lady.
-I’m Cremonesi’s companion and I break into the tranquility of this household that got here on trip and in consequence issues are going to occur at residence. She is a girl who has an advanced previous and who has skilled a really robust and traumatic current state of affairs.
-What excited you about this challenge?
-Every part! Once I learn the script I used to be stunned and I actually appreciated it. Cristian appears to me an awesome director, his movie 76 89 03 It’s cult and the primary time I noticed it it broke my head, so I knew that he was going to deal with the darkness with a really agency hand.
Diego Cremonesi, the person with a thousand faces, put himself within the sneakers of “The Nameless One” after collaborating within the movies Goodbye Buenos Aires and Rhinoceros and within the collection Santa Evita.
“As an audiovisual actor I was trained by filming horror and suspense films. So for me this is part of what I learned to do, and it is something I like. Genre cinema has expressive possibilities that, in general, realism or manners do not allow you, “he assures.
“Here one can play with extreme levelsWhether it’s energy, expressive or acting, I can’t find it everywhere. For me acting is a game and this allows you to try colors and things that you cannot do regularly. It also had Diego Peretti’s seasoning. He is an actor that I admire and it was the possibility of working with him for the first time. “
“And I have fellow barbarians like Carla Quevedo, with whom we already shared projects but we had no scenes together (in Monsoon he was the prosecutor and she was Alicia Muñiz) or Julieta Cardinali, with whom she had not worked either.
The director is also someone I have admired for many, many years. He has always been very generous to me since he saw me in Massacre tonight, a horror film that in 2009 won the Festival “Buenos Aires Rojo Sangre”, Cristian was a jury, I also won as an actor and there he began to follow me.

-What’s particular about your character?
-It is a nightmare! I might say that it’s the nightmare that the protagonist goes to stay, that’s Peretti. My position is to shake up the tranquility of the couple that Diego and Julieta embody and provides it a little bit of the suspenseful tone that this movie has. It is a film that I am actually having fun with making, other than being a visible bomb and I feel it will explode on the display. I’ve numerous religion in him.
Engaging solid. Thriller on the doorstep. And promise of excellent cinema.
