Editorial Reviews

With precision and finesse, director Miguel Bardem delivers a stylish, Grifters-style thriller that would make David Mamet proud. The slick, handsome Ernesto (Ernesto Alterio) has spent a lifetime in crime, working the three-card monte on suckers on the streets of Madrid. His small-time lifestyle changes when he meets the elderly El Manco (Manuel Alexandre), a veteran of the trade with connections to the mysterious Federico (Federico Luppi, The Devil's Backbone, Cronos), the king of all con men. After the three ascend to the rarified world of high living, Federico proposes a real estate scam worth millions.

I bought the movie based on the title and the fact that Federico Luppi was one of the starring players. This is a movie that resembles "The Sting" or "Nine Queens." It is very well done--great dialog, fast paced. Throughout the movie I tried to anticipate the ending--I had constructed several plausible endings--and all of them wrong! I won't give away any plot details and various instances of plausible misdirection--you should discover these on your own.

3.0 out of 5 stars Spanish Scam Artists February 9, 2010
Format:DVD
This was a non-comedic, Spanish version of "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels." It tests whether you can deal with having a main character be villanous. "The Talented Mr. Rpipley" did the same thing. The scenery reminded me of Almadovar's work, but the film lacked is quorky messages about gender, sexuality, and sundry topics. It was more interesting near the beginning than by the end. Watching this was a great way to listen to more Spanish and bone up on those skills. This wasn't award-winning, but it wasn't terrible either. Why not peep it?

3.0 out of 5 stars I enjoyed it. August 10, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The first reviewer of this DVD pretty much nailed it. I do not believe there is need to comment any further. And I also like watching Spanish films to improve my Spanish. :)

I like watching and hearing Victoria Abril's voice in movies. I am a fan. I also enjoy Frederico's acting.
