Storyline

In the summer of 1928, several inmates from the National Penitentiary in Buenos Aires managed to escape. The film narrates the fate of each of these runaways in search of their destiny - tough men with their own ethical codes and ready to do anything not to return to prison. Some of them will suffer violent deaths, while others manage de disappear. Sordid and moving stories, not excluding tenderness and love, mercy or horror sealed with a pact of prison love that will remain in the heart of Buenos Aires, as witness of the yearned-for freedom.

Not a implausible escape
9 May 2013 | by (Montevideo) – See all my reviews

The story was inspired from a true escape which happened on March 19th, 1931 in Montevideo. A 30 feet long tunnel was dug between one restroom of the Punta Carretas national penitentiary and an abandoned coal yard at the opposite side of the street (Carbonería 'El Buen Trato'), whose owner and wife had actually moved back to Buenos Aires. Nine inmates escaped, three anarchist amongst them who were captured shortly afterwards, and returned to the prison up to 1936 then to be deported to Argentina, were there imprisoned and never seen alive again. In fact, they made use of three cars for the runaway.

Moreover, the movie has its own plausible story, and characters are competently played thanks to a team of outstanding actors. Yes, it does not develop a linear plot, but how about Tarantino or Christopher Nolan?
