A quiet, cynic taxidermist, who suffers epilepsy attacks, is obsessed with committing the perfect crime. He claims that the cops are too stupid to find out about it when it's well executed, and that the robbers are too stupid to execute it the right way; and that he could do it himself relying on his photographic memory and his strategic planning skills. After he is invited on a hunting trip away from his home, an accident gives him the chance of his life: the possibility to commit the perfect crime he has been waiting for. Written by
I think that more than half of all the Argentinian movies I have seen were starred by Ricardo Darín. I don't know if it's lack of good actors, but, anyway, all I can say is that he had great performances in every his movie movie I have seen and in this one it isn't different.
About the movie, people who watched Nueve Reinas could say that it's a bit slow and, in fact, it is at the beginning, but once you start to get involved with the plot and with Darín's character this slow pace turns to be something that bring us the feelings that the main character might be feeling.
If there's one thing that could be better explored, in my humble opinion, was photography, mainly in the scenes at the bush and the desert.
Anyway, if you became a Bielinsky fan because of Nueve Reinas, be prepared to find a completely different movie. Whereas in Nueve... you realize what's the movie about since its beginning, in this one you have to be a bit more patient. However, the plot is still clever and in the end you'll hardly be disappointed.
