[Even after] the plot's spiralling, shimmering sleights of hand and its never-ending ruses and deceptions . . . the ending will still pull the rug out from under [you].

This thoroughly engaging and endearing film is as much of a swindle as the plot itself, stealthily stealing your concentration and your affection even as it cheats you of a credible plot.

Argentine writer-director Fabian Bielinsky seems to be a criminal mastermind. Luckily for society, Bielinsky uses his powers for good.

So engaging, so entertaining is this Mametian feast of con games and double-crosses that the subtitles seem to disappear and the reel change marks may as well not exist.
