Plata quemada

Marcelo Piñeyro Argentina, 2000

ramosbarajas's rating of the film Burnt Money

I wanted to like this more than I did. I feel the performances and cinematography are great, and the directing is quite stylized. But it goes on for too long. In that way, the story is weak. There are moments that try to portray stasis, but then it does it too much. Then I feel the story tried to include some deeper themes, like religion or existentialism that just fall flat.
