"A consistently playful, gradually beguiling existential dramedy on the multitudinous subject of work and freedom." - Isaac Feldberg, rogerebert.com

"Rodrigo Moreno methodically unfurls a genius tragicomedy on the elusive nature of freedom." - Carlos Aguilar, The Playlist

"Rodrigo Moreno’s dreamy and discursive THE DELINQUENTS might kick off with one of the most low-key bank robberies anyone has ever attempted, but it’s hard to overstate how thrilling it feels once the thief finally tells us about what he stole." - David Ehrlich, Indiewire

In Rodrigo Moreno’s beguiling THE DELINQUENTS, Buenos Aires bank employee Morán cooks up a scheme to liberate himself from corporate monotony: he’ll steal enough money to support a modest retirement, then confess and serve prison time while his co-worker Román holds on to the cash. As the lives of this thief and accomplice converge and diverge, Moreno melds the existential and the playful to explore the nature of freedom itself. This cinematic discovery is at turns surreal, relatable, funny, romantic, surprising, restorative––and above all––a delight. Film Center exclusive.
