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

It is difficult to accept this version of Robledo Puch
20 September 2018 | by hdirenzoSee all my reviews

First of all, the film is very good if we talk about filmmaking. It is slow, and somehow this Works against. The acting is amazing, every actor is wonderfull. But come on...we know who this serial killer was, in this film he is too humorous and funny....couldn't accept this aspect of the film.
