Philip French
Observer [UK]

The film's plotting is at times ragged and muffled, though this might be intentional, a way of suggesting the endless ramifications of the endemic corruption. The performances, however, have depth and resonance.

What starts as a slow-burning series of minor dramas slips into a high-octane gear in the final act.

Some movies are described as explosive: this is positively eardrum-perforating.

The statistic that 8,000 Argentinians die in traffic accidents every year gives his film a context, but Trapero didn't need to work quite so hard to prove it.

Nigel Andrews
Financial Times

The film's bitterness of vision may owe as much to style as to content: this is not King Lear, it does not go deep. But a vision of sorts it is, harsh and haunting.

Bruising, moving and utterly compelling.

An absorbing if flawed thriller set in Buenos Aires...

David Parkinson
Empire Magazine

It's relatively effective as a thriller, but rarely welcomes the viewer into its world of legalities and despair.

[A] grimly satisfying noir...

Scenes spark then fade, until the sinuous climax arrives with collision force.

The desolate Edward Hopper nightscapes provide an effective context...

The Argentinean actor Ricardo Darín (The Secret in Their Eyes) has an almost Bogart-like gift for playing world-weary rotters with a core of nobility.

...this is not just about a stormy romance. It also deals with personal integrity, or lack there of, corruption within the Argentine insurance industry and the violence that it spawns.

This is a film that's musical with the cracking of bones and crashing of cars.

Trapero's soggy, misguided, derivative melodrama was, somehow, Argentina's Official Selection as Best Foreign Language Film for the Academy Awards.

... tips into melodrama with characters so desperate they are driven to extremes, but that's noir territory. It's an entertaining, albeit disturbing, ride with a helluva final destination.

Carancho begins to accelerate with alarming speed - and doesn't stop until the startling, bitterly ironic final frame.

A no-frills version of a perennial dark story: how love of a sort can take root in a festering place.

A stark, compelling crime drama, shot in lurid close-ups and leading inexorably toward a devastating end.

Transforms a sordid little story of two losers into something more interesting and complicated.
