El Ardor 2014 Watch Online
Alice Braga, Chico Díaz, Claudio Tolcachir, Gael García Bernal
Described by writer-director Pablo Fendrik as a â€œMesopotamian Western,â€ El Ardor stars Gael GarcÃa Bernal as KaÃ, a mysterious shaman who emerges from the RÃo ParanÃ¡ to defend a clan of tobacco farmers against a band of cold-blooded land-grabbers. But this is no ordinary Western. Filmed on the edge of the Amazon rainforest, near the border of Brazil and Argentina, the lush, claustrophobic jungle with its birds, insects and prowling animals becomes as much a part of the story as the misfortunes of its characters. With minimal dialogue and yet plenty of drama, including a few good old-fashioned gun battles, El Ardor is absolutely spellbinding.
A visually sumptuous adventure about a mysterious man who emerges from the Argentinian rainforest to rescue a family from ruthless land-grabbers bent on stealing their farm, Ardor is written and directed by Pablo Fendrik (Blood Appears, The Mugger), and stars Gael Garcia Bernal (No, Motorcycle Diaries) and Alice Braga (I Am Legend, City of God) working together for the first time since their collaboration in Fernando Meirelles' Blindness. Ardor made its world premiere as an Official Selection at the Cannes Film Festival. (C) Participant
