Drama, Suspense/Thriller
The late Argentinean director Fabian Bielinsky follows up his hugely successful Nine Queens with another heist story (2005), this one about a morose taxidermist (Ricardo Darin) who goes on a weekend hunting excursion with a buddy that leads to an accidental killing and then to a complicated plot to rob an armored truck. Unlike its high-octane predecessor, this is a somber, contemplative noir piece. While never boring and sometimes quite gripping, Bielinsky's manneristic style becomes distracting; he seems more concerned with generating an ominous atmosphere than with telling a compelling story. In Spanish with subtitles.
