Schizophrenic Chilean comedy (2001) about a poor cabdriver (Alejandro Trejo) who's held up by two fast-talking misfits but then joins them in a series of robberies, raking in enough money to ensconce his family in a middle-class neighborhood. Director Orlando Lubbert serves up a good deal of lame slapstick as the trio execute their ill-conceived jobs and follows up with the obligatory cops-and-robbers shtick. Yet the film offers a compassionate portrait of Chile's urban underclass, who are cynical toward the government and resentful of the rich, and candidly conveys the hero's ambivalence toward his own class. In Spanish with subtitles. 90 min.
