    This film had me guessing from the start as to where it was going to go. Ricardo Darin's ambulance chaser was a fantastically realized character and it was exciting to see him try to figure out how to get out of the seemingly endless situations he got himself into. Martina Gusman was riveting as the ambulance driver-cum-doctor who needs to keep shooting up to stay alert. The story they find themselves in – of corrupt legal and medical systems colluding…

    Continuando minha jornada, do cinema extravagente de Xavier Dolan, para o cinema politico mascarado de Pablo Trapero, mais uma vez, o diretor aparentemente faz o que gosta e entrega mais um filme denúncia, ABUTRES (Carancho, 2010) passou em Cannes com uma recepção morna, aqui no Brasil não foi diferente, uma vez que, Darin já tem seu fiel público, na época do seu lançamento em seu país - a Argentina - fez um público de 700 mil espectadores – um número…

    This movie packs a punch. The second act lacked a tiny bit of go forward, but you realise that, by the amazingly powerful 3rd act - it was just setting us up for the punch. And it was a knockout blow.

    I've never seen Ricardo Darin star in a bad movie. I'm sure there are some, but they're not on my radar. This isn't considered Pablo Trapero's best movie by a long shot, so I'm now on the lookout for more. 8/10

    Os ABUTRES do filme do argentino Pablo Trapero são aqueles que cercam os mortos e acidentados, em busca de espólios. Na noite de Buenos Aires, acompanhamos um deles, Sosa (Ricardo Darín), que trabalha para uma fundação dedicada a auxiliar vítimas de acidentes a resgatar suas indenizações das companhias de seguros. O que estas vítimas não sabem é que a tal fundação se apropria ilegalmente da maior parte das indenizações, um sistema corrupto que engloba advogados, médicos, policiais e gângsteres.

    Δικηγόρος που βγάζει τα προς το ζην σπεύδοντας σε τόπους ατυχημάτων, με σκοπό να ψήσει τα θύματα να του δώσουν το ΟΚ προκειμένου να κινήσει τις διαδικασίες εναντίον των ασφαλιστικών εταιρειών κι έτσι να είναι όλοι ευτυχισμένοι, βρίσκεται μπλεγμένος όταν ερωτεύεται όμορφη νοσοκόμα ενώ ταυτόχρονα το όχι ακριβώς νόμιμο γραφείο στο οποίο εργάζεται αρχίζει να τον κυνηγάει σε μαφιόζικο στυλ, καθώς κι αυτός δεν είναι ακριβώς αυτό που λέμε τύπος και υπογραμμός. Κοινωνικοερωτικογκανγστερικό θρίλερ με τον Ricardo Darin να είναι…

    ★★★

    Gritty Argentinean noirish thriller about an insurance scam (apparently widespread in Argentina according to some statistics they show at the start) where accident victims are “ambulance chased” by a criminal consortium who “facilitate” the insurance payout. Un be known to the generally low socioeconomic down on their luck victims, the criminals take the cream of each payout for themselves.
    The story centres on Lujan, an Emergency doctor at a hospital who does occasional Ambulance runs, and Sosa a disgraced lawyer…

    Interesting but the ending was quite too... something, hysterical?

    It feels like the only Argentinian films to get distributed in the US have to star Ricardo Darin. There is a genuine absurdity to is since he's really only an average quality actor. Thank goodness though he shares a lot of the story's time with Martina Gusman. There's a really dark and disgusting sequence about forty minutes in that I would have never guessed the film was going to that will probably lose a lot of audience members, but I…
