Cert: 15 Year: 2002 Length: 101 mins Language: Spanish
A streetwise Argentinian jewel of a film about the thin line between cops and crooks in crime-ridden Buenos Aires, this is a triumph for young director Pablo Trapero.Shot authentically and intimately by Guillermo Nieto, and illuminated by the corrupted innocence of Jorge Román's winning central performance, this powerful character piece follows a young provincial locksmith's initiation into the maelstrom of the police force and capital city life. El Bonaerense demonstrates once again why Argentine new-wave film-makers are starting to make waves internationally.
