The best Argentine movie ever made!!!
5 October 1998 | by See all my reviews

I'm Argentinian, though I'm not very fond of Argentine films. Most of them suffer from poor dialogue and bad acting. Also, there aren't many directors that are really good. Adolfo Aristarain is one of them, the best of them. Here he does his finest, most perfect film, a marvellous, cold-hearted film noir, where characters seem to have no purpose in life. Federico Luppi plays a hitman who's about to retire and has to do his last assignment, though I'm not gonna say what it is because I'll be giving away an excellent plot. The acting is superb, the script (based upon the novel of the same name by Jose Pablo Feinmann) wonderful, and the direction solid. Ultimos Dias de la Victima is the best Argentine film ever made and maybe one of the best movies in all film history. Needless to say, I'm giving it a very enthusiastic 10. Some years later, the very inferior Argentine director Hector Olivera, disastrously remade this film as Two to Tango for Roger Corman.
