Ariel Winograd’s follow-up to SFF2012 hit My First Wedding will delight audiences with laughs and keep them guessing until the very end.
The steely-eyed, George Clooney-esque Sebastián (Daniel Hendler My first wedding SFF12) and striking but cheeky Mariana (Valeria Bertucelli I Thought it was a Party SFF14) are both high-class professional robbers. They are both so good, that neither is aware of the others existence… or so it seems. After tricking Sebastián into stealing a near-priceless golden Aztec mask for her, Mariana escapes to Mendoza only for him to track her down with the help of his nerdy techno-whizz sidekick Chucho (Martín Piroyansky). Forced into a corner, Mariana agrees to make a deal to pay Sebastián back by stealing an antique 1845 bottle of Bordeaux - apparently Napoleon III’s favourite tipple. But who is actually calling the shots in this heist? What follows is a complex cat and mouse game around Mendoza, involving investigators, powerful public figures, and many disguises.
A witty screenplay is wonderfully encased by snazzy suits, sunglasses and glamour. The charming leads are paired with striking locations of Argentina’s most picturesque wine country, giving good reason to why To Fool a Thief was awarded the Special Jury prize at the 2013 Huelva Ibero-American Film Festival.
