Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Argentine actor/filmmaker Adolfo Aristarain, best known to American audiences for his political dramas and musicals, wanders the white corridors of medicine. Aristarain's protagonist is an insignificant worker in a huge plant run by corrupt management. When the worker is injured in an accident, he decides to get even with his bosses. He fakes a complete loss of speech, hoping to simultaneously collect a huge insurance settlement and awaken the outside world to the safety hazards plaguing the plant. More laudable for its intentions than its execution, Time for Revenge (Tiempo de Revancha) nonetheless won a prize at the Montreal World Film Festival.
