Nine Queens was a rare, fabulous foray into genre by Argentina’s new wave – a consummate con-movie, with a deliciously shifty Ricardo Darín as a grifter hoping to make a mint out of counterfeit stamps. Vividly filming on location in Buenos Aires, writer-director Bielinsky slyly incorporated the country’s very real economic crisis into his story’s sting. Hollywood paid its usual respects by remaking the film – nowhere near as well.
Director Fabián Bielinsky
Cast With Ricardo Darín, Gastón Pauls, Leticia Brédice
