Lies | Chicago Reader


In 2003 a car bomb exploded in the parking garage of Bogota's El Nogal social club, killing 32 people and wounding more than 200 others. Incongruously, this 2007 Colombian feature by Jorge Ali Triana uses the tragedy as springboard for a sex farce: a philandering executive (Diego Bertie) conceals a tryst by telling his wife he has business at the club and then must explain how he escaped the carnage. One lie leads to another, and soon he's masquerading as a hero for the local news. Bertie is a pleasant leading man, but no one has succeeded yet in making a comedy about terrorism. In Spanish with subtitles. 87 min.
