Synopsis

Gaston Pauls, Ricardo Darin, Laetitia Bredice.
A petty thief is observed, and saved from arrest, by a major league con-artist. The two strike up a partnership to pull off a once-in-a-lifetime con trick. Their job is to sell a set of (forged) rare stamps, 'The Nine Queens'. All goes to plan until the forgeries are stolen and they have to set up another con trick to be able to pull off the first one. But just how many con tricks are being pulled? And by who on whom? The plot is layer upon layer of inter-weaving conspiracies. Superbly scripted, well paced and totally engrossing, this is a highly accomplished debut.
5 awards, incl. Best Director & Best Film - Argentinian Film Critics Awards 2002
Audience Award, Portland Film Festival 2002
