Review by Todd Kristel

This movie isn't particularly original, it isn't particularly deep either (although it could be considered a commentary on Argentina's economy), and some of the details don't quite make sense if you scrutinize them. But if you enjoy con-artist films in which nothing is as it seems and nobody is sure whom to trust, then you'll probably find this movie to be a fun ride. The plot has plenty of clever twists and turns to keep viewers on their toes, and the lead actors Ricardo Darin and Gaston Pauls have a good rapport as the two cons who may or may not be able to trust each other as they attempt to make the big score. Granted, the movie does have its flaws. For example, some of the plot coincidences seem rather far-fetched, although that's not suprising for this type of film. But the story moves along at a reasonably brisk pace and the movie has enough humor to keep it from getting too leaden.
