El Ángel

Carlitos is a hedonistic teenager with the face of an angel and the mind of psychopath. With his movie star swagger and blond curls he finds it easy to seduce, steal and manipulate, but also resorts to extreme violence on a whim. Inspired by the longest-serving prisoner in the history of Argentina, imprisoned since the early 1970s, this stylishly energetic film revels in the darkest side of delinquency in a way that’s both horrifying and thrilling to watch. Carlitos teams up with schoolmate Ramón to embark on a journey of discovery, love and crime – and all just for the hell of it. As if reality is one big movie set, Carlitos does everything for effect, to make an impression, to push the boundaries, to feel truly alive.
