I liked Bielinsky's previous film, Nine Queens, more than this one. Both are heist films. The previous one was more about fun. This one was more about me taking 5 sittings to get through it on DVD. Not that this was bad, it just wasn't terribly good.
The main character, Espinosa, is an epileptic, mild-mannered taxidermist who fantasizes about pulling off the perfect heist. Luckily, for him, he accidentally shoots someone while hunting and takes all of the man's papers and cellphone. Luckily for Espinosa, the man was planning a heist! How fortunate! So Espinosa gets involved in the scheme a la another movie I didn't like all that much from 2006,
13 Tzameti. I did like this one more than that though.
Anyway, you'll never guess what happens? Yeah, that's right - Espinosa's epilepsy acts up at an inopportune moment. Oops.
Sadly, Bielinsky died of a heart attack in January 2006 at the age of 47. This was only his second feature film.
