Event details

Directed by Rodrigo Moreno
Starring Daniel Elías, Esteban Bigliardi, Margarita Molfino

Beguiling and unpredictable, Cannes Un Certain Regard breakout The Delinquents reinvents the heist film as a free-flowing adventure like no other.

Buenos Aires bank employee Morán (Daniel Eliás) dreams up a scheme to liberate himself from corporate monotony: he’ll steal enough money to support a modest retirement, then confess and serve prison time while his co-worker holds on to the cash.

Soon under pressure by a company investigator, accomplice Román (Esteban Bigliardi) heads to a remote rural idyll to hide the funds. There, he encounters a mysterious woman who will transform his life forever.

The latest from Argentinian writer-director Rodrigo Moreno, THE DELINQUENTS melds the existential and the playful to explore the nature of freedom itself. Suffused with timeless beauty, this cinematic discovery is at turns surreal, relatable, funny, romantic, surprising, restorative – and above all – a delight.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “A bank-robbery film that defies genres… Utterly individual, this is one bank robbery film that writes its own cheques.” – Financial Times.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “Beguilingly surreal slow-motion Buenos Aires heist tale… If Pedro Almodóvar and Eric Rohmer teamed up to compose a meanderingly long crime caper it might look like this. – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “Comic twist on classic crime saga… Three hours absolutely whiz by. And you’ll feel like a new person at the end of it.” – Little White Lies.
