Storyline

A depressed former champion awakes. He's tired, a bit out of shape, and his conscience is draining him. His career in the ring ended abruptly when he killed his rival with a single devastating punch. That's why Marcos Wainsberg, the Inca of the Sinai, wants to quit fighting. But today is not the day to be thinking about that. Today his ex-girlfriend will come, in peace. Today is a good day. But the doorbell rings and the person at the other side is his black sheep cousin, Huguito. Today can be one of those days when everything changes. The only thing that is left to know is whether it will be for the better... Written by Breaking Glass Pictures

Argentine madness!
24 October 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Not knowing what to expect coming into this little Argentine exploitation film, I allowed myself to fully immerse myself into the situation faced by these characters and give it every opportunity to impress me, and impress me it did! The fact that the movie is simple really plays into its hands. Niconar Loreti has planned and executed Diablo with a lot of confidence, which ultimately allows the viewer to enjoy themselves without unnecessary plot devices. Funny, entertaining, crude, violent, surreal, are just some words that can be used to sum up this movie about a boxer, down on his luck, who gets unwanted visitors in the suburbs of Buenos Aires. If movies like Hobo with a Shotgun are your thing, then Diablo is essential viewing!
