I'd rather watch "Nine Queens" than "Nine Songs."
- Nine Queens review by Kurtz
Enjoyable long-con drama from Argentina. If you’ve seen “House of Games” and “Matchstick Men” you’ll know the drill, but the central pairing is effective: Gaston Pauls’ young trickster is outwardly bland but harbours a great talent for what he does, whilst Ricardo Darin is excellent as his oily mentor. The ending is a touch theatrical, but part of the pleasure in this type of film is trying to spot where the rug is being pulled out from under our feet, and I have to admit that the director Bielinsky certainly did a number on me.
