Rest in Peace

Netflix‘s latest drama and mystery movie, Rest in Peace, has now officially landed on the streaming platforms and intends to keep the viewers on the edge of their seats from start to finish. With some brillaint performances and several plot twists, Rest in Peace is exactly what needs to be added to your watchlist ASAP!

Rest in Peace is an Argentinian movie directed by Sebastián Borensztein, who has showcased some mind-boggling talent through this latest movie, and we’re here to tell you exactly what worked for it, so you can go ahead and decide whether you want to stream it or skip it!

Joaquín Furriel Delivers an Exceptional Performance

Several elements in Netflix’s Rest in Peace stood out time and again during the movie, however, if there was one thing that remained consistent throughout was Joaquín Furriel‘s performance. He wasn’t just the lead protagonist, but also carried the entire movie on his shoulders with his grief-stricken expressions and dilemma of a father and husband who simply wants what is best for his family, no matter what it takes.

Rest in Peace followed the journey of Sergio, who is a father of two, trying to balance work, a mountain of debt, and much more all at once. However, the debts keep getting bigger and the time to pay them back is shorter.

Sergio is struck with an overwhelming sense of responsibility, and when there’s a small window of opportunity to protect his family, even when it means his absence from their lives, he takes it, and tries his best to move forward with his life, while his family mourns his loss.

This movie will manage to keep the viewers biting their nails and wondering what’s next until the climax scene, which truly comes as a shocker to everyone. Sergio eventually returns for his daughter’s wedding, someone he hadn’t seen in years when he realizes that a man had taken his place in his family’s life, and it was the last person he had excepted.

Rest in Peace has a tragic end, and an unexpected one, but that’s what made the movie so well-roundedly brilliant to watch.

Rest in Peace is a movie about love, loss, sacrifice, and most importantly, about family. Apart from a gripping plot, and acting that one would remember far days to come, this Argentian movie had many elements that simply tied every thing together and left no stone unturned as it came to an end.

There are certain movies that simply stay with you for a while and make you think about how differently things would have gone if one element shifted, and Rest in Peace is one of those movies.


If it wasn’t evident already, we highly recommend streaming Rest in Peace, which is now exclusively available on Netflix. Make sure you don’t miss out on a single minute and let us know in the comments what you thought about it!
