Marina Antunes [Celluloid 11.30.09] Argentina trailer news western



Westerns are a dying breed. Though over the last few years there has been a minor resurgence in the genre with some amazing films (The Proposition, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford…I’m looking at you) the genre is most definitely on the downward slope. What does that mean for niche films within the genre? Only that we see even less of them and in some cases, they're nearly extinct.

That isn’t stopping director Fernando Spiner and Timecrimes producer Eduardo Carneros from taking a run at bringing back the Gaucho Western. Shooting has wrapped on Aballay based on a short story of the same title from Argentine author Antonio di Benedetto. It’s the story of an ill-tempered gaucho who reconsiders his life of crime and brutality after seeing the terror on the eyes of a boy whose father he killed in cold blood.

The concept art for the project suggested a violent, brutal film and the first trailer supports that initial thought; it's gritty, violent and bloody and oh so awesome.

Trailer after the break.
