Leo is 22 and sells his body on the street for a bit of cash. The men come and go, and he stays right here - longing for love. He doesn't know what the future will bring. He hits the road. His heart is pounding.
Carlitos is a seventeen-year-old youth with movie star swagger, blond curls and a baby face. As a young boy, he coveted other people's things, but it wasn't until his early adolescence that his true calling--to be a thief--manifested itself. When he meets Ramon at his new school, Carlitos is immediately drawn to him and starts showing off to get his attention. Together they will embark on a journey of discoveries, love and crime. Killing is just a random offshoot of the violence, which continues to escalate until Carlitos is finally apprehended. Because of his angelic appearance, the press dubs Carlitos "The Angel of Death." Showered with attention because of his beauty, he becomes an overnight celebrity. Altogether, he is believed to have committed over forty thefts and eleven homicides. Today, after more than forty-six years in jail, Carlos Robledo Puch is the longest- serving prisoner in the history of Argentina.Written by

Are people crazy? Does anybody consider the chance to be free? Going wherever you want; however you want. We all have a destiny. I am a natural-born thief. I don't believe in "this is yours, and this is mine".

One of the best movies I have ever seen. The cinematography, the acting, the music, the whole vibe in general is just amazing, it definitely made me feel some type of way that I can not explain, very few movies manage to do that. Yes, I realize that this film is about a criminal and that what Carlos Robledo Puch did is wrong, however I don't think that the movie romanticized him in any way shape or form. It was very interesting to see how the character interacts with other people. I also love that the film obviously showed that it's not the parent's fault that Carlos is a criminal, the contrast is quite prominent between the characters. It is always easy to put the blame on parents without realizing that everyone has a mind of their own. 10/10 would recommend.
