José and Rosa are very much in love. Theyre working in Spain he as a construction worker and she as a housekeeper for an elderly couple, Señor and Señora Torres. But Rosa learns that dating José is like going out with the Hulk. When he gets into a heated exchange with his foreman that ends with the other mans death, José hides away in the attic of the Torress mansion, unbeknown to Rosa or anyone else. Creeping around the house, José begins to spy on the Torress and discovers their mistreatment of his beloved Rosa. But because he cant act on his anger lest he be caught hes left to simmer in secret.
Directed by Sebastian Cordero and produced by Guillermo Del Toro (Pans Labyrinth and Hell Boy), Rage (Rabia) is a love story, tragedy, and commentary on the conditions of working immigrants in Spain. Its also a thriller that leaves you wondering how the volatile (and tad creepy) José will handle his growing madness. Rage opens Friday at Coral Gables Art Cinema and runs through February 17.
