Storyline

Carlitos is a seventeen-year-old youth with movie star swagger, blond curls and a baby face. As a young boy, he coveted other people's things, but it wasn't until his early adolescence that his true calling--to be a thief--manifested itself. When he meets Ramon at his new school, Carlitos is immediately drawn to him and starts showing off to get his attention. Together they will embark on a journey of discoveries, love and crime. Killing is just a random offshoot of the violence, which continues to escalate until Carlitos is finally apprehended. Because of his angelic appearance, the press dubs Carlitos "The Angel of Death." Showered with attention because of his beauty, he becomes an overnight celebrity. Altogether, he is believed to have committed over forty thefts and eleven homicides. Today, after more than forty-six years in jail, Carlos Robledo Puch is the longest- serving prisoner in the history of Argentina. Written by Dane

Trivia

In Argentina at the time the maximum sentence for any crime was a life sentence, but that carried a mandatory parole after 45 years. The crimes were so severe the judge decided to avoid this possibility and laid down a new precedent of a sentence of lifetime reclusion plus undetermined length of prison. After 45 years in prison the prisoner can ask every year how much longer he must serve. In practice, he will never get out if any parent of a victim is alive. See more »

Goofs

Almost at the end of the film, Carlitos payed at the kiosko a bunch of cigarettes and some sweets with a 10 Argentinian pesos bill, but that currency didn't appear until the 90s. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Carlos: Are people crazy? Does anybody consider the chance to be free? Going wherever you want; however you want. We all have a destiny. I am a natural-born thief. I don't believe in "this is yours, and this is mine".
