MUBI's take

Pablo Trapero is a name you should know. One of Argentina’s most acclaimed and internationally renowned filmmakers, he’s a favorite of the Cannes Film Festival for his socially acute dramas of human struggle. Lion’s Den is one of his best, an award-winning melodrama that never abandons reality.
