Lone small time thief encounters wounded girl
30 June 2005 | by See all my reviews

This small movie is really very good, very lyrical. I highly recommend it if you can get your hands on a copy. Small time thief steals a cab at night in Buenos Aires. While playing at being a taxi driver he picks up a girl who passes out in the back seat. When he finds out that she has a gunshot wound, he can't take her to a hospital and face explanations, therefore he has to take her home, which he shares with his drunken father (who is in a wheelchair). From then on, a well handled, delicate small story evolves. It mostly concerns our reluctant good Samaritan, who turns up to be very quixotic in the end, the wounded girl and the reason for gunshots our hero heard minutes before he picked her up, and their blossoming relationship.
