Nine Queens / Nueve Reinas (2000)

Starred Ricardo Darin, Gaston Pauls, Leticia Bredice, Tomas Fonzi, Leo Dyzen, Elsa Berenguer, Carlos Falcone, Ignasi Abadal, Oscar Nunez...
2000, Argentina, Spanish

Nine Queens (original title Nueve Reinas) is a first class theft movie. Hard to predict, and a very well-done heist from world cinema. The movie is so well-done that the characters during the movie voices the audience's questions and make you even more curious. Such as one of the character in the movie says in one point 'I know there is a trick being pulled off to me, but I can't just get it where and how.'. If you are a viewer hard to trick, then you watch whole the story, entire characters and dialogues by doubting all of them but still can't figure it out. And I guess, it is enough for a movie in that genre to be qualified as 'very well-done'.

All the actors but especially great Argentine actor, Ricardo Darin's acting is magnificent. We saw him in another two great movies, where he gave another memorable performances in XXY and in El Secreto de Sus Ojos (The Secret in the Eyes), and second one would win the Best Picture in Foreign Language Oscars in 2010.

The movie swept many awards away in several Latin American movie awards, as well as, a win for South Feed Favorite Film in MTV Movie Awards.
