“A HEIST MOVIE LIKE NO OTHER. It’s a vision of a life unlived—as impossible as it is intoxicating.”
“Rodrigo Moreno methodically unfurls a genius tragicomedy on the elusive nature of freedom.”
“A film where nothing is left to chance, yet anything seems possible.”
—The Hollywood Reporter
In Rodrigo Moreno’s free-wheeling Cannes breakout, 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 DELINQUENTS whips the existential and the playful into a beguiling and unpredictable stew as it explores the very nature of freedom itself. Suffused with timeless beauty, this “pitch-shifting odyssey” is at turns surreal, relatable, funny, romantic, surprising, restorative – and above all – a delight. Argentina’s Best International Feature Film entry to the 96th Academy Awards.
