This crime caper is the feature-film debut of Argentinean film director Fabian Bielinsky, who has also written the screenplay. It seems like he's taken some inspiration for this film from David Mamet and Alfred Hitchcock.

The story follows two small-time crooks named Marcos and Juan (Ricardo Darin and Gaston Pauls, respectively). They both end up trying to pull the same scam at the same time at a convenience store. The more experienced Marcos likes what he sees from Juan and decides that they could work together on some small jobs.

One day, they get a call from Marcos' sister Valeria (Leticia Bredice) about a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity involving a fake set of rare stamps called the Nine Queens. If they find a buyer, they will rake in six figures. However, this scheme isn't going to come together without a few hitches.

This film has won numerous awards, including best film, best actor, and best original screenplay from the 2001 Argentinean Film Critics Association Awards. Most reviews of this film have been fairly favorable; seven out of ten rating or three to four stars out of five. The US release date for this film has been pushed back a couple times from the original date of January, 2002. (Marty Doskins/BOP)
