Argentina 2000

Details imdb

Seen 5 May 2012

Money, love and betrayal

IMDB 7.2/10
Rotten Tomatoes Audience 76% liked it
This film is based on true events and as the saying goes, truth is stranger than fiction. What started as a routine job became more messed up as not everything went as planned. I give this film a 7.0/10 for the plot, twists and turns.

My impressions:

Money started the whole ball rolling
Bringing the motley group together
Different types, characters and temperaments

The job was carried out
Unfortunately it did not follow the plan exactly
The follow-up was just
A patch-up, a respite

Then the waiting
An agony, when tempers flare
Emotions bare, raw
Needed a breather

But that brought its own problems
Entangled emotions
Frayed, feelings betrayed, abandoned

In the end
Choices had to be made

It is a matter of survival
