Movie Info

A con man finds himself up against an adversary he hasn't the strength to challenge in this crime drama from Spain. Ernesto (Ernesto Alterio) is a man who grew up learning the easier way to get out of trouble was to lie, and over the years, he's built a career out of his gift for twisting the truth as a con man. Teaming up with two experienced grifters, Manco (Manuel Alexandre) and Federico (Federico Luppi), Ernesto is able to pull off a major scam involving the Spanish Army that scores the three a major payday. This should put Ernesto and his partners on Easy Street, but things begin to go sour when Ernesto is reunited with a former girlfriend, Pilar (Victoria Abril). Ernesto is a soft touch for anything that Pilar might suggest, and when she plots a big con for him and his partners, he offers no objections. However, when Manco dies under hazy circumstances and Ernesto's childhood pal Gipsy (Alejandro Casaseca) conveniently appears wanting to take his place, Ernesto begins to suspect that he may be the one being scammed. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Incautos (Swindled)

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

Much like a con man who makes the classic mistake of getting too greedy, this Spanish thriller from director Miguel Bardem squanders an auspicious first part before becoming hopelessly convoluted and over-the-top in the second.

Just get to the backstabbing and, for God's sake, try and have it make some sense.

(** 1/2): [img][/img] Just one too many twists hurt it. A near-miss.
