Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
This movie is adapted from La Guerra del Cerdo, a chilling novel by Adolfo Bioy Casares. In some not-too distant future, a whole class of young people grows up viewing the elderly as wholly disposable. The youngsters in this film view the elderly with contempt; they deprive the young of money, food and housing. Little wonder, then, that these people feel free to kill and rob them. Given how their victims react, with cravenness and apathy, the youngsters continue with their exploits with few qualms. Eventually, for reasons which are unexplained, the killing spree stops, despite the apparent sympathy of the police.
