A nun, four priests and a greyhound, in an isolated house in La Boca, a small town on the Chilean coast. The priests are doing a penitence, the nun looks after them and the dog plays fetch. It is a regimented, dismal, soundless life. A fifth priest arrives, looking like a figure straight out of a Greco painting, along with a sacrificial lamb in the form of a vengeful fisherman. The narrative derails, implodes and upends, and a sixth priest arrives: a destroying angel in the form of a Vatican official. It would be a shame to say more about this dense, suspenseful, unpredictable film.

“The winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the most recent Berlin Film Festival, EL CLUB combines strong, shadowy images, haunting Arvo Pärt music and a jam-packed script. Its theatre of the cruel is an explosive cocktail of religious chants, priapic diatribe, moral questions and animal instincts, the grotesque and the sacred, shadow and light, to the point where we no longer know which one is blinding us. This is much more than an anti-religious statement, it is a massacre game in which no one is spared as it plies the same dark waters as Les Cendres bleues, by poet Jean-Paul Daoust.”
- ERIC FOURLANTY, FNC 2015

“EL CLUB examines impunity in shocking, enlightening ways that effectively challenge the privileged position held by the Catholic Church in Chilean society. ”
-MOVIE MEZZANINE

“Working with co-writers Guillermo Calderón (Violeta Went to Heaven) and Daniel Villalobos, Larraín both understands and revels in the inflammatory nature of his scenario and the accompanying statement he's overtly making. Rare is the image or exchange that isn't loaded with commentary, nor chills with equal parts dark satire and devastating horror, resulting in a simultaneously powerful yet delicate display of questioning. Whether prolonging a soul-crushing tale screamed from a sidewalk, interrogating multifaceted yet fragile figures direct to camera, or employing the movie's many canines to demonstrate the extent of church cover-ups at their most extreme, the meticulous psychological dissection The Club accomplishes can't be underestimated, nor can its impact. ”
