Modern Robin Hoods Bound for Patagonia, 27 March 2005
Author: from Portland, Oregon

Sometimes it seems hard to find an Argentine movie released in the last 25 years with a plot that doesn't depend on corruption or economic crisis.

"Wild Horses" was made in 1995, a time of relative prosperity for Argentina, so it's corruption, not an economic crisis that leads old anarchist Jose (Hector Alterio) to threaten to shoot himself unless a large bank in Buenos Aires returns the $15,000 he lost years before because of the institution's shady practices.

Pedro (Leonardo Sbaraglia) is the yuppie executive chosen by Jose to turn over the money. The two leave the bank with a far larger sum and soon find themselves together on the road bound for Patagonia, pursued by police and paid assassins, and cheered on by the poor and the media as modern-day Robin Hoods.

Unlikely as this story sounds, it works well enough, thanks to great acting by Alterio. Director Marcelo Pineyro also keeps everything moving along fast enough so that we don't dwell on the occasional plot holes. Federico Luppi pops up at the end of the picture in a wonderful cameo. His performance alone is worth the price of admission.
