A funny, intelligent movie that shows another side of Argentina.
5 March 2003 | by (Rosario, Argentina) – See all my reviews

Tito and Castor are two sad, lousy thieves that have been in jail for 20 years. When they are set free, they discover that the old friends have forgotten them and the outside world is not even close to the one they knew. With the funny style of old Italian comedies, this movie is an interesting painting of the other Argentina beyond Buenos Aires. The original title, "Rosarigasinos", is a slang ("gaso") born in rosarine jails at the beginning of last century. All those who have ever been to Rosario know that the city lives and breathes football (soccer). Like most of the people in Rosario, Tito and Castor are "canallas", that is, fans of Rosario Central, the most popular football team outside Buenos Aires. Constant references to the folkloric rivalry with the other team in Rosario, Nob, are made along the film. Two examples: when they urinate on the wall of this club, and when they repeatedly say: "I am canalla, I don't quit", referring to the day in which the players and coach of Nob forced and early ending of the game as they were being beaten by R. Central 4-0. In all, this movie is absolutely enjoyable, and will not deceive those who expect an intelligent plot. Most of the performances are outstanding, and the multi-awarded main actors succeed in impersonating the accent of the people from Rosario. In "gaso", I would conclude that this is a "wogasonderful, fagasantastic mogasovie".
