In Buenos Aires, the epileptic taxidermist Esteban Espinosa is a painstaking man that likes to plot the perfect heist. When his wife leaves him, he accepts the invitation of his friend Sontag to hunt in a forest. They rent a cabin owned by Diana Dietrich and her husband Carlos Dietrich but soon they have an argument and Sontag returns to Buenos Aires. Esteban stays alone and while hunting a deer, he accidentally kills Dietrich near a shed. Esteban opens the shed and finds a plan for the heist of an armored truck. When he returns to the cabin, he stumbles with the criminals Sosa and Montero that are seeking out Dietrich. Now Esteban has the chance to execute the perfect crime he has dreamt on.Written by

The museum scenes were actually shot at two different locations distant from each other. The exterior shot and the scene in which Sontag is introduced were filmed at Museo de La Plata (In the city of La Plata), while both the hall of stuffed mammals and bank scenes were filmed in Museo Argentino de Ciencias Naturales (in the city of Buenos Aires).

I saw the movie expecting nothing from it, and I was completely astounded. The main issue of the movie, Darin character's inner desires of achieving a major theft, drives the main character to unexpected consequences, from his vane curiosity only. Darin's role is an epileptic taxidermist longing for something else from his boring life; I think that the oppression of the character is perfectly reflected by Darin who gives what I think is his best acting role ever. I was surprised also by Pablo Cedrón, a man which is very funny (remember chachacha and his Paraguayan sexologist) but here plays a violent skeptical man with hidden plans.
