Trivia

The two scenes in which Marcos Woinski delivers the money in the mailbox were not scripted. In the original screenplay there was only one delivery scene and it took place on a parking lot, with Mendizabal (Federico Luppi) behind the wheel of his car, and the delivery guy throwing the envelope in his car. The original ending (in the original screenplay)was supposed to be only the close shot of the curtain in Mendizabal's room with the three cigarette burns. And the ending seen in the film (the one with Kulpe picking up his money from the mailbox) was scripted at the last minute and filmed right after the Mendizabal Pick up. See more »

The best Argentine movie ever made!!!
5 October 1998 | by FulciSee 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.
