When Santiago Mitre’s “15 Ways to Kill Your Neighbour” was released in Argentina in 2016, it was met with both critical acclaim and box office success. The film, which follows a group of friends who live in a Buenos Aires apartment complex and turn to increasingly violent methods to settle their disputes, is a pitch-black comedy that cleverly satirizes the Argentinian capital’s culture of machismo.
Now, Mitre is bringing “15 Ways to Kill Your Neighbour” to the international stage with a remake set to star Gael García Bernal. The Mexican actor, who is best known for his roles in films like “Amores Perros” and “The Motorcycle Diaries,” is no stranger to dark comedies, and he is sure to bring his trademark charisma to the role of Pablo, the womanizing ringleader of the group.
With a star-studded cast and a director who knows how to mine the darkest depths of human behavior for laughs, “15 Ways to Kill Your Neighbour” is sure to be one of the most talked-about films of 2022.
