Storyline

Escaping from his criminal baptism, Reynaldo Galíndez lands in the patio of the house inhabited by Carlos Vargas, a retired security guard. Vargas proposes a deal: the young boy will repair the damage caused to his home when falling in return for not being handed over to the police. The lessons given to the teenager by the old guard will give rise to a relationship not unlike the old legends of educating a king. The agreement will start to fall apart when the loose ends of the robbery Reynaldo had participated in start wrapping themselves round them.

Not a bad film
21 May 2018 | by tprspanSee all my reviews

This film from Argentina was pretty good. Good acting, directing and editing etc. The film starts fairly fast with a robbery committed by three young guys. One gets away, Rey, and winds up hiding out at the home of an older man and his wife. The story starts to look predictable, but turns out to be anything but that. The characters become well developed, and that aspect becomes interesting, as all roles in the film become pretty clear cut, except Rey himself, because as the plot thickens, the viewer could ask himself, do I like this guy or not. The language in the movie was pretty thick Agentinean Spanish dialect, but I saw it on HBO On Demand with English subtitles, so understanding the film was not an issue. I will say that the film was a little short, maybe a bit too faced paced, but still it was well done.
