Trapero is a force, as both a director and a producer, in Argentina's exploding though financially strapped film industry.
March 4, 2012
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.
March 1, 2012
What starts as a slow-burning series of minor dramas slips into a high-octane gear in the final act.

[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.

April 28, 2011
Trapero's soggy, misguided, derivative melodrama was, somehow, Argentina's Official Selection as Best Foreign Language Film for the Academy Awards.

April 25, 2011
... 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.
March 24, 2011
A no-frills version of a perennial dark story: how love of a sort can take root in a festering place.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
