The Life Of A Judge: Trailer For EL MUDO, A Sly, Dark Comedy
The Vega Bros. (sadly, no relation to a Tarantino film) are back with sophomore feature El Mudo, another dark comedy about a judge who, after a series of unexpected happenings, turns paranoid with the fear that someone is out to murder him. With the Peruvian justice system being regularly accused of corruption and judges being seen as menaces to society, it's a topic ripe for some humorous skewering.
El Mudo is a co-production between the brothers' own company, Maretazo Cine, France's Urban Factory, and Mexico's No Dreams Cinema. This ensures that it will gain worldwide distribution and a spot at film festivals. Here's hoping lightning can strike twice for the Vega Brothers.
