Synopsis:
Set in Buenos Aires over the course of 24 hours, Nine Queens is a taut, highly seductive heist thriller in which nothing is what it seems and where no one can be trusted. A naive young con artist (Gaston Pauls) teams up with an enigmatic, experienced master criminal (Ricardo Darin) for what could be the crime to end all crimes. But in a relationship propelled by brinkmanship and double-cross, corruption rarely has a happy ending.

What a twist - Nine Queens review by JD

Spoiler Alert

Brilliant acting. I felt the characters were totally believable and had intriguing personalities. The plot unfolds at a perfect pace and kept my complete attention throughout. The twist at the end will have you thinking all the way through the credits.

smart crime drama - Nine Queens review by CP Customer

The usual schtik where you think you know what's going until the very end and then realise you had no clue but done very well.

I'd rather watch "Nine Queens" than "Nine Songs." - Nine Queens review by Kurtz

Spoiler Alert

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.
