good film
12 June 2010 | by meinwpgSee all my reviews

The art of stealing is a watchable film I spent the whole film trying to discover where it was made -I only knew something about "argentinia" from the plot line.

The plot is not predictable like American action films -except for 3 minutes of the "happy ending"

Decent script & acting: Bravo Portugal!

Great music and soundtrack. End title song is brilliant (someone please post the name of that band and the name of the track because they are great!)

Good work -best of luck to the filmmakers in the future!
