Plata quemada (2000), Eng. Burnt Money

Jak film! Puno ispaljenih metaka, električni udar emocija sa ekrana, očaravajuća kinematografska lepota i sjajna istinita priča. Ovo je film o odnosu dvojice kriminalaca u pozadini čuvene pljačke banke u Buenos Airesu 60-ih godina, odnosu punom strasti, intenzivnih, dubokih i nežnih emocija koje gledalac, zahvaljujući sjajnog glumi dvojice glavnih aktera, neće moći a da ne oseti. Sjajni Leonardo Sbaraglia i Eduardo Noriega imaju savršenu hemiju na ekranu, a celokupnoj seksepilnosti filma doprinosi i nepopravljivo-strejt lik kojeg tumači Pablo Echarri. Ovaj pravi mali skriveni dragulj svetske kinematografije pored ostalih osvijio je Goya nagradu (španski ekvivalent Oskaru) za najbolji strani film na španskom jeziku.

Plot Outline: Burnt Money, which premiered at the 2000 Toronto International Film Festival, is set in Argentina in 1965 and is the fourth film by director Marcelo Piñeyro. This true story follows the tumultuous relationship between two men who became lovers and ultimately ruthless bank robbers in a notoriously famous footnote in the annals of Argentinian crime history. Nene (Leonardo Sbaraglia), Angel (Eduardo Noriega) and Cuervo (Pablo Echarri) are bank robbers who flee from Argentina across the border to Uruguay after a large-scale hold-up that turns bloody. Angel is hurt and the three must lay low until Angel recovers. Nene and Angel are known to everyone they know as "the twins" because of their resemblance, but the two are not brothers at all - they are involved in a steamy homosexual relationship. To get back to Argentina, the group must first wait for Fontana, the brains behind the robbery, to arrange for passports. Anxious from hiding, Cuervo decides to break curfew and go party. After Nene and Angel also decide to take off, Nene meets a prostitute named Giselle and Angel ends up getting in a fight. The group is forced to abandon their refuge and Angel and Nene decide to move in with Giselle. However, the sexual attraction between Nene and Angel burns too strongly and when Nene gets hostile with Giselle and kicks her out, she goes straight to the police to snitch on the group. It's not long before police are surrounding the building and the fate of Nene and Angel appears to be sealed. Written by Strand Releasing {www.strandreleasing.com}

A poetic masterpiece, 26 January 2006, 9/10
Author: Ricardo Aquino (ricbigi@yahoo.com.br) from Recife, Brazil

I cannot forget the images that Marcelo Piñeyro conjured up and was able to capture in this film. Everything, the visuals, the literate script, with its sensitive, sensuous, heartbreaking dialogue, the suspense that does not leave you for a single minute, the violent finale that you expect and still keep hoping it will not happen, the exquisite acting of all the major players, it will all stay with me, forever, I am sure. This is film-making of the best kind: contemporary, mature, it relates to reality but transcends it and reaches a perfectly beautiful, artistic, poetic level. This is also a film that treats a gay relationship with total honesty and truth. The characters have their faults, but none of them has to do with their sexuality. They make, indeed, a beautiful pair, and I wish they would have had a chance to be happy together, somewhere, somehow, at the end.
