Film recommendation #16: EL ÁNGEL

Seductively energetic, Luis Ortega's 70s vintage-inspired film is loosely based on the life story of the infamous Argentine gangster Carlos Robledo Puch, who has been behind bars for over 45 years.

EL ÁNGEL / THE ANGEL by Luis Ortega

The blond curls which frame angelic features are full of deception: 17-year-old Carlitos has honed his skills as a thief to perfection. When cool and good-looking Ramon arrives new at school, Carlitos is immediately attracted to him. As partners in crime, they soon find themselves in a frenzy of theft and robbery, where they also begin to leave dead bodies behind. Dubbed the "Angel of Death" by the press and hunted by the police, he soon finds himself heading towards an abyss.
