Mesmo que se perca em alguns momentos, o filme-denúncia argentino ABUTRES merece atenção por conseguir ser crítico, romântico e tenso em menos de duas horas sob uma direção admirável (ainda que não a melhor) de Pablo Trapero.

A spectacular thriller, gripping, visceral and directed with an intense realism by Trapero, who uses a handheld camera and long takes to simulate a documentary style and keep the audience incredibly tense - and the last scene is fulminating, almost driving the viewers to a heart attack.

Not a complete storyline.

Pablo Trapero nos trae este suspenso basado en la figura de Sosa (Ricardo Darín) es un abogado que se dedica a sacar provecho de los accidentes que sufren las personas, con demandas jugosas, en representación de una fundación inexisente. Todo con el fin de quedarse con parte de la posible indemnización. Sosa conocerá a la doctora Luján (Martina Gusmán) con quien nacerá un romance basado en una relación amor odio. Muy bien lograda, y dura como caracteriza a Trapero..

"Carancho" nos muestra el verdadero rostro de las aseguradoras de accidentes de transito y su codicioso propósito lleno de amenazas y muerte fuera de las carreteras. Lástima que su ritmo sea tan lento y aburrido que uno apenas puede seguir dicha trama tan prometedora.

Darin was great in The Aura so I checked this out. He works well with Gusman. Carancho is a gritty, well-directed look at the automobile insurance racket in Argentina. A legal counselor and a doctor get caught up when things don't go as planned.

Realmente no paro de sorprenderme ante la versatilidad que posee quien es, a mi parecer, probablemente el mejor actor latinoamericano de nuestros tiempos. Ricardo Darin personifica en esta entrega a un abogado "carroñero" que se ve atrapado dentro de un sistema corrupto en el mundo del fraude de los seguros de accientes y vida. Un drama con leves toques de "thriller" que captura excelentemente, el sufrimiento humano desde multiples perspectivas.

Perhaps 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?

Not a bad film by any means and certainly worth watching. It's stylishly directed and well acted given that the characters are underdeveloped. It's gritty but it needed a more cohesive story. The film meanders along for the most part, only escalating in pace and violence towards it's bitterly ironic conclusion.

Through the first thirty minutes I had no idea where the film was headed or what storyline was going to make me keep watching. The next hour answered my question clearly. A high-energy noir thriller that is not perfect but is visually and narratively engaging.

Gritty and taut thriller ably directed by Trapero; just make sure you fasten your seatbelt before watching.

Un poco apresurada en sus desiciones resulta esta película, pero eso no impide que Darín nos regale otra actuación tremenda tal como nos tiene acostumbrados....... larga vida al cine argentino!!

Tough drama set in the grim underworld of Argentinaâ(TM)s insurance trade, where shady â~lawyersâ(TM) sniff out accidents like Caranchos (Vultures) in the hope of legally representing the victims and claiming the majority of their payouts. The narrative centres on Sosa, a once legit lawyer now chasing ambulances for cases, and Luján, a young paramedic new to the corruption of her profession. Both are lonely characters, and both retain a degree of mystery. Performances from the two leads are solid, and the narrative is left to gradually develop without being spelt out â" but at times it feels on a par with a higher end TV movie, as opposed to a cinematic release; but this is due to the claustrophobic nature of the cinematography. It is mainly set at night under the orange glow of streetlights, and there are barely any wide shots. It is this atmosphere of the film that imprints on you more than the story and you feel like youâ(TM)ve been through the hospitals and backstreets of the city. That being said there is a fantastic degree of tension in the final reel, and as the characters make a rare switch to daylight you are fully invested in the outcome â" and the hope of better days and redemption.

Cry for me Argentina.
½ September 11, 2012
A good little noirish thriller from Argentina where everyone's moral compass is off balance, peppered with dark humour and with a gripping climax, Trapero's film is refreshing crime thriller.

Gruesome, relentless and improbable!

Darín me enamora con cada uno de sus personajes... la peli no me encantó, pero no puedo decir que no me gustó.

Ricardo Darin is for my money one of the best actors working in foreign cinema today ,his very presence in a film is in my view a guarantee your going to have a great performance whatever the subject matter.

Here he plays an Ambulance chasing Lawyer who falls for a young doctor who he helps at the scene of a road accident.
He is a damaged person because he has lost his permit to practice law and is now reduced to staging accidents for money and ripping off accident victims.
She is an overworked doctor with a debilitating drug habit and corrupt boss who is in cahoots with the corrupt law firms.
The film is very bleak but that shouldnt put you off as it has plenty to say about romance and the effect it has on people whos world is slowly caving in around them.
Martina Gussman is equally good in the love interest role ,and we even get some film noir elements with the powerful storyline.
A film that presses all the right buttons ,one hopes Hollywood doesnt get its hands on it.

Personal injury compensation is a ruthless and cut-throat business in Argentina, as seen through the budding relationship between Sosa the cynical, seedy ambulance-chasing lawyer and Lujan, the innocent but weary, drug-addict doctor. The performances are great, the plot takes some jumps that are a bit hard to believe and the ending will leave you breathless. Ricardo Darin has been in better film, but this is worth watching if you're ok with subtitles.
