Fun Argentine noir gangster flic charismatic protagonist
If a movie's success is based on how much you care about the characters in it and relate to them, then this movie is a great success.
This is the story about a recently released convict Oso (Julio Garcia) trying to pick up the pieces of his life on the outside. He was cheated out of his share of the money from the crime he was jailed for and goes to collect it. But the head of the gang he worked for Turco doesn't want to pay and wants him to do another job.
He reconnects with his daughter and ex wife who has moved on with her life.
There was one hole in the plot that bothered me--Oso the main character after doing the second robbery would surely have left finger prints all over the stolen car. It is minor. Obviously you also have to suspend some disbelief when Oso knocks off about a dozen armed thugs outnumbered 10 to 1....but by this time you have gotten to like the guy and champion him on.
Unlike Hollywood in Argentina sometimes crime pays. GREAT.
It is enjoyable and of course its venue BA is fun too.
Last but not least the sound track was quite good. Usually I only notice the sound track when it really bad or good.
