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.March 1, 2012 | Rating: 3/5
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.

Audience Reviews for Carancho
May 06, 2013Perhaps the fall-spring relationship doesn't quite work but Carrancho is an interesting character sketch of a horrid character. How far will he go to profit at his trade?John B Super Reviewer
May 23, 2012In a country where thousands die every year on road accidents, there are always voltures waiting around to profit from it. The film treads between corruption and personal integrity. And although it seems indifferent at first, but as it unravels it gets more gutsy and ends with a climatic bang.Nicolas K Super Reviewer
Jun 27, 2011Pablo Trapero's thriller Carancho, introduced corrupt people who profit from victims of car accidents. Among them is Sosa, played by Ricardo Darín, an ex lawyer who lost his license by working for thugs who scam victims for their insurance. Luján (Martina Gusman), was a beautiful young doctor who was at the beginning of her career and must work emergency rooms and ride in ambulances to help the injured in order to gain experience to become a respected doctor. They met over an accident, where Luján was helping a victim and Sosa was planning to use the victim for his plans. Both Sosa and Luján seemed to fight their own demons, Luján happened to be a drug addict, while Sosa endangered the lives of innocent people to satisfy the bosses to whom he worked for.This was the difference between their passion for each other and their participation in the dark crime of 'caranchos, resulting in an ending few will predict.Daisy M Super Reviewer
Jun 09, 2011Very well done. Interesting storyline. Rather gritty, which always attracks me. I have to say...Ricardo Darin is becoming one of my top favorite Spanish actors. Just about everything I have seen him in I have liked.Cynthia S Super Reviewer
