Speaking of Argentinian noir, I recommend an offbeat film about a young
street cop who join the force to more or less escape his troubled life.
Ordinary corruption, ordinary daily life and a realism close to verism most
of the time. In cheap quarters of a suburban city of the province of Buenos
Aires, and you really can feel the sticky air of the precinct poorly
title: EL BONARENSE (2002)
director: Pablo Trapero
