Alejo García Pintos,
Single, hopeless, and still living with his mother in a dusty village somewhere in Argentina, the thirty-two-year-old locksmith, Zapa, receives a call from his boss to open a safe--and next thing he knows--he is handcuffed, and charged of theft. Framed and down on his luck, Zapa's miserable life will take a turn for the better, when a letter of recommendation from his uncle and former policeman, Ismael, opens a position in the Police Academy to become a corporal. During the days of his rigorous training, Zapa will also experience an irregular love affair; however, will he finally manage to take charge of his life as he works his way up in the West Buenos Aires Police Force?Written by

You're an intelligent man, tell me: is the monkey a quadruped or... how was it, a biparous?
A biped. Biped, Marina, biped. Monkeys have evolved... In the animal evolving scale, there's no doubt monkeys have evolved. And there are certain human beings, that, although they're just non-feathered bipeds, they are much more than just primates.

A cop's life in Argentina.. AND, that of a cop who's not even a cop! Sounds interesting, doesn't it? Well, it kind of is.. The story and the acting are not too bad. But unfortunately the movie suffers from the typical lacking of most Argentine movies: It doesn't have a twist. I think the rather weak screenplay is to blame. With this story and these actors, a much better movie could have been made. Plot, screenplay, story, etc.. Those concepts must be well-knit (or at least each handled properly) in order to make a flawless movie. That's where El Bonaerense fails. Something is sooo missing! I'm not sure what exactly, but something for sure. So I can't say it's quite rewarding. Tries hard, but doesn't really deliver. Nevertheless, it's watchable, and quite an interesting insight on Argentina and its police force in general. I would recommend watching it if it's not going to cost you too much. But if you're planning to add one more item to your DVD archive, buy something else with your money to add to your collection, and just RENT this very one to watch once.
