Film still: To Fool a Thief


"Rolls together two strands that Argentinean cinema has shown it's good at—swindle thriller and comedy romance—into a winning, unpretentious whole"
  —Hollywood Reporter
"Highly entertaining"
  —Chicago Reader

Master thief Sebastian (Daniel Hendler) discovers that the Aztec mask he stole during one of his high-tech heists is a fake: rival Mariana (Valeria Bertucelli) stole the real one. He follows her to Mendoza where both are made an offer they can't refuse by a corrupt wine collector: to retrieve an 1845 bottle of Bordeaux from a vault. This new collaboration between Hendler and director Ariel Winograd after My First Wedding evokes the technical derring-do of such popular capers as the Ocean's Eleven trilogy.

Directed by Ariel Winograd, Argentina, 2013, 105 mins. In Spanish with English subtitles.
