Sharp caper movie in which an older con man (Ricardo Darin) cajoles a younger one (Gaston Pauls) into swindling a billionaire (Ignasi Abadal) by selling him a forged set of extremely rare stamps. First-time director Fabian Bielinsky presents likable characters, despite their line of work, in a smart script that seduces with its double-crosses and twists, notwithstanding some predictability. However, the film's conclusion suggests that duplicity and connivance ultimately pay off, which is troublesome. Subtitles. An implied sexual encounter and intermittent rough language. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops classification is A-IV -- adults, with reservations. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
