Note: Found this pretty good copy on the Youtube channel “Argentine Cinema with English Subtitles” subtitles were heavily re-worked by me, fixing some formatting mistakes, lines that were too long, etc. I highly recommend you guys to check out this YT channel, you can find plenty more Argentine gems and most of them have English subtitles, whoever is behind this channel is doing God’s work really to be subbing so many rare films from scratch, simply amazing, make sure to check it out.
Thanks Jon and I will check out those Argentinian films!
It starts out pretty good, but gets formulaic after the first half hour = once our “hero” is in prison. Not bad, but mainly for completist viewers = fans wanting to see each and every noir. 6/10 in my opinion.
