In 1971 Buenos Aires, charismatic 17-year-old Carlitos (Lorenzo Ferro, in his energizing debut) gets his kicks from robbing swanky houses… and committing serial murder. Inspired by the real-life “Angel of Death” (a tabloid nickname earned because of his golden curls and baby-faced swagger), this slick and brashly funny breakout from the Cannes Film Festival is as unnervingly seductive as its wicked teen antihero and his partner-in-crime Ramon. Imagine a sexually ambiguous, Spanish-language Bonnie & Clyde with a sleazy punk attitude and a propulsive soundtrack of ’60s and ’70s Argentinian rock-n-roll.
