Movies like this are one reason I like to take a chance on foreign films I've never heard of-- this Argentinian serial killer film ranks right up there with the best of them. Victor is a respectable married man who, every Wednesday, brutally assaults and kills a woman for dressing too provocatively. His "calling card", though not graphically shown, is not for the squeamish viewer. After one such killing, he meets a second man in a coffee shop, and they begin to trade stories of sexual conquests. This second man, who earns his living as a clown entertaining children, soon invites him to his house for sex with a female friend. Meanwhile, Victor's wife and secretary discover what they think is evidence of his infidelities. A sub-plot involving a newspaper reporter comes to a horrifying end. And this is about all I can say without spoiling some of the several surprises at the end of the film, though I will say the final line is satisfyingly chilling. All in all, an intricately-plotted film with well-drawn characters, whose grainy look only adds to the realism of its horrific details.
