In the mid-seventies, a strange man arrives in a quiet provincial city. In a restaurant, without any apparent reason, he starts insulting Claudio, a renowned lawyer.

"ROJO is a sophisticatedly entertaining reminder of our propensity for malevolent apathy."
Carlos Aguilar - LOS ANGLES TIMES

"Adopting a cool, oblique yet accessible approach that complements the washed-out, nicotine-stained palette, Naishtat builds a modular narrative that increasingly bristles."
Manohla Dargis - THE NEW YORK TIMES

"Benjamin Naishtat directs with a steady hand and a strong vision. Pedro Sotero’s cinematography reveals the place and time in a respectful style that captures the period without satirizing it. This is a film that satisfies on every level and bears repeated viewings."
Bradley Gibson - FILM THREAT
