Buenos Aires, 1971. Carlitos is a seventeen-year-old youth. 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.

“Ortega's unapologetic punk attitude translates in the film's highly entertaining and seductive style ... consistently dazzles.” - Manuela Lazic, Cinema Scope

“A stylish period piece boasting solid performances, colorful visuals and a terrific vintage soundtrack.” - Stephen Dalton, Hollywood Reporter

“With its charismatic leads, sexual ambiguity, and chooglin' soundtrack of early '70s Argentinian rock, it's as entertaining as crime dramas get.” - Pat Padua, Washington City Paper
