A Movie

A road movie that begins when a man tries to rob a bank and the bank's clerk, a yuppie, pretends the thief has kidnapped him to help him run away. While they're running away, they meet a girl who becomes part of the team.

While I may not know much about Argentinian cinema, I do know that this is a strange adventure. It gets increasingly hectic as it goes, with the second half being far more high-intensity than the first. The initial bank robbery and "kidnapping" are the least of the plot points.

Luckily this never devolves into complete madness. Possibly semi-madness, but nothing quite like "Mad Max" though it does have elements of a world that is beyond saving.
