Goldfrid seduces the dominican public with his tesis sobre un homicidio

Argentine film director Hernán Goldfrid conquered the Dominican public with his latest production, Tesis sobre un homicidio (Thesis on a homicide). His presence at the Blue Mall Cinema Palace allowed him to experience the reception of his drama and the questions and comments it prompted among the audience.

To the applause that preceded the discussion held after the film screening on Friday the 15th, a barrage of questions followed. Like Goldfrid, Ricardo Darín, in the film’s starring role, won the appreciation of an audience that was left restless as well as satisfied with the end of this unfinished mystery.

Goldfrid mentioned the wonderful universality that can be achieved with film, the fascinating fact that a film like this can move audiences equally in many different settings.

“I like when the film travels,” he said, highlighting the pleasure he feels seeing the film’s reception in different venues. In this case, it is a Caribbean setting far from his native Argentina.

Guest of the Dominican Global Film Festival (FCGD), Goldfrid is here with his second featured since his success with Música en espera (Music in waiting), a romantic comedy that captivated audiences in 2009.

With the Argentina and Spain production starring Ricardo Darín, the young director took a chance with a very different proposition. The suspense gives a distinctive tone to the film and shows his talent for storytelling and provoking the viewer.

That Darín is well-known to Dominican moviegoers was evident at the gathering. Also, the comparison of the film’s plot with that of El Secreto de sus ojos (The Secret of Their Eyes), where Darín also plays a lawyer obsessed with finding the perpetrator of a crime.

When asked about the similarities, Goldfrid noted the differences of settings and scenarios, and the emphasis he placed on achieving what he enjoys most: generating as many questions as possible in the viewer.

He expressed his admiration for Darín and the privilege of working with him. “I never tire of having worked with him,” he said, adding that Darín is a great questioner, someone who always endeavors to know why the character assumes a particular attitude.

Goldfrid’s full-length feature of 106 minutes seems short given the suspense it generates.

At 34 years old, Goldfrid began his career as an actor but after several years he began to stand out when he was chosen as a director’s assistant for several television and film productions.
