Movie Info

Locksmith Zapa (Jorge Román) lives unremarkably with his family in the countryside of Argentina -- until his corrupt boss, Polaco (Hugo Anganuzzi), frames him for a robbery. When his retired-cop father bails him out, he is sent to Buenos Aires, Argentina, as a police cadet. Under the guidance of Molinari (Víctor Hugo Carrizo) and the mentoring of Inspector Gallo (Darío Levy), Zapa rises quickly, but soon he discovers the deep corruption that pervades the Buenos Aires police force.

  • Credit El Bonaerense with journalistic single-mindedness and, given recent Argentine history, sheer guts.

    December 5, 2003
  • Director Trapero drives home his message -- the thin line between crooks and cops -- without hitting viewers over the head or seeming to point fingers.

    November 26, 2003 | Rating: 3/4
  • [A] powerful sweat-stained swatch of Argentine neo-realism.

    November 25, 2003 | Rating: 4/5
  • The vapor traces of farce and policier that waft from this terribly earnest film never coalesce.

    November 25, 2003
  • Wry, acerbic, satiric and moving.

    November 25, 2003 | Rating: 3/4
