âFast-paced and entrancing psychological thrillerââBooklist
"A portrait etched in acid of a Buenos Aires society menaced by economic and political crisis. Without value judgement but with light irony, Bizzio reveals the ugly secrets of a family, seen through the eyes of his naÃ¯ve squatter. The imagery is often blinding and the dialogue pitch-perfect."âLe Temps
JosÃ© MarÃa, a construction worker, is in love with Rosa, a maid in an exclusive Buenos Aires mansion. Subjected to constant humiliation by his foreman, JosÃ© MarÃa kills him, then hides on an empty floor in the mansion. He silently observes the decadent behavior of the owners and watches Rosa in her most intimate moments. JosÃ© MarÃa is also privy to more humiliating experiencesâhe watches as Rosa is raped by the young son of the family, and so he must kill again.
A metaphor for the decline of a social class, a country, and the resentment that spreads like a plague penetrating to the core of its people, Rage is also a tale of love and suspense that raises the tension with each successive page until it unavoidably shifts toward an intimate, shattering catastrophe. Humor, misfortune, shrewd social commentary, and thrilling erotic fantasy come together, offering the reader an inside vision of contemporary Argentina.
Film adaptation of Sergio Bizzioâs Rabia, produced by Guillermo del Toro and directed by SebastiÃ¡n Cordero, was presented at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival.
