Storyline

Based on true stories, "La Riña" highlights the polemic of bare knuckle fights in a playboy party where drugs and drinks are served on silver trays. This secret party is thrown by ex-students from the American school who bet fortunes in poor wrestlers confronting each other inside an empty swimming pool for a few dollars. Instead of showing poverty in Brazil, "La Riña" unveils the opposite by unmasking a luxurious and sick elite in São Paulo. Written by Marcelo Galvão

Trivia

The film was turned in English, aiming at an international audience, but the 132 minute running time had to be severely reduced to 86 minutes to tone down the violence and some deaths, namely among the female fighters. See more »
