Co-produced by Pedro Almodóvar, this stylish crime caper is based on the early years of Argentina’s most infamous serial killer, Carlos Robledo Puch, dubbed by the press as ‘The Angel of Death’ for his angelic good looks. Lorenzo Ferro gives a hypnotic performance as the teenage sociopath with movie star swagger and a penchant for stealing. After meeting delinquent Ramon, the pair embarks on a crime spree propelled by raging hormones and a palpable sexual tension, vividly brought to life by a colourful 1970’s aesthetic and a tongue-in-cheek disco soundtrack.

Starring Lorenzo Ferro, Chino Darín, Daniel Fanego

“A nonchalant, sexy “Goodfellas”; a “Bonnie & Clyde” featuring two young men in a love story of sorts, one that defies categorization or labels, and is entirely driven by the taboo thrills of criminality.” – Los Angeles Times

“Ortega has a real eye for flashy, chaotic set pieces and a real ear for excellent Latin rock needle drops on the film’s killer Scorsese-inspired soundtrack.” – Entertainment Weekly


EL ANGEL is unrated – 18+ only will be allowed in the theatre.
