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.

Best entertainment
7 June 2001 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

Pretty conventional story - seven fugitives and their destinies after they escape. Settled in the Argentina of 1928, which is prettily but superficially painted. The way of telling the stories is a bit "a la italiana", with too many time turns: in the jail - after the jail - in the jail - before the jail... Pretty confusing, sometimes. Music is overapplied and often disturbing (or excellent, like in the "Casta Diva"-Sequence of the unwilling murder). But all the details that make this movie "not a great one" are forgettable because of the SUPERB cast: anyone of the actors and actresses gives a socially and psychologically stunning performance, with this "surplus" of lust that reveals again, in every of its moments, that acting is a joyful kind of play and ART. It made me feel very happy when I saw it, and I retained the feeling even hours after I left the cinema. What else can you expect?
