El Angel

Buenos Aires, 1971. Carlitos (Lorenzo Ferro) is a seventeen-year-old with movie star swagger, blond curls and a baby face. As a young boy, he coveted other people’s things, but it wasn’t until his early adolescence that his true calling—to be a thief—manifested itself. When he meets Ramon (Chino Darín) at his new school, Carlitos is immediately drawn to him and starts showing off to get his attention. Together they will embark on a journey of discovery, love and crime; killing is just a random offshoot  of the violence, which continues  to escalate until Carlitos is finally  apprehended. Because of his angelic appearance,  the press dubs Carlitos "The Angel of Death." Showered  with attention because of his beauty, he becomes an overnight celebrity.
