Tense, intense, horrifying. A well done movie.

A compelling 'no way out' plot plus fine acting, with a gritty, unpolished, 'real' look from the camera work. Don't miss it.

This is a slow movie.. Intriguing story, set in Argentina.. Not an easy country to live and work in, where many people in authority are on the "take".. The movie fails to deliver.. I wouldn't recommend it..

Carancho is a blood and guts thriller from Argentine director Pablo Trapero. An unlikely team [Insurance fixer and young doctor] tries to bring justice to their patients / clients. Anything more would destroy a bitterly brilliant movie. Not for the feint of heart.

Carancho (vulture - in this case a vulture defrauding money from insurance companies) is a well-scripted tale of insurance fraud, drug addiction, mob competition and romance. It stars Argentina's Ricardo Darin who starred in the Oscar winning "The Secret in Their Eyes," and also "Nine Queens" and "The Aura." Darin gets beat up quite bit as he tries to outwit the authorities and his mobster friends and mobster enemies.
