Like in a western, the action begins when a group of people perform an escape, although this time is not a sheriff’s prison they flee, but a juvenile detention center, and they walk a long way in search of a place –their place in the world. They are Gaucho, Simón, Grace, Monzón, and Demián, and in order to survive they will have to hunt, steal, use their knowledge and beliefs, find their goal, lose it, find it again, and control their impulses while working as a team. The power of Los salvajes lies on Fadel’s talent to move forward in a choral story without neglecting his intense characters’ singularities and turning the setting into a dense and lyrical character –which is both material and symbolic, local and universal. This way, he honors and transcends the topics of classic cinema and models the timing of the story by compressing and expanding it, moving back and forth between epiphany and a vibrant storytelling, with the help of his unforgettable characters played by unforgettable actors. Los salvajes is destined to prevail.
