Does not star Jennifer Garner.

Alias La Gringa tells the story of a helpless lifetime criminal who has a habit of getting thrown in the nastiest jails and, much to the chagrin of this authorities, seems to escape from them easily and back in the arms of his floozy girlfriend. But after a recent breakout, he feels he is obligated to one of the prisoners he was with and goes BACK to get him, and then try to escape again.

While this is not going to get me whooping, this was an interesting, if not somewhat depressing look at South American crime and their prison system, which, surprise surprise, looks like hell. The lead actor in this, Andres Malatesta, does a good job here, looking like the wise-ass criminal he's supposed to be.

Certainly not a popcorn movie, this is a good film for people interested in the South American justice system.
