- In real life, Carlos Robledo Puch is the longest-serving prisoner in Argentina, having spent more than 45 years in jail.
- Almost at the end of the film, Carlitos payed at the kiosko a bunch of cigarettes and some sweets with a 10 Argentinian pesos bill, but that currency didn't appear until the 90s.
- [first lines]
- Carlos: Are people crazy? Does anybody consider the chance to be free? Going wherever you want; however you want. We all have a destiny. I am a natural-born thief. I don't believe in "this is yours, and this is mine".
Atom User Reviews
I enjoyed watching this movie. The story was told in a unique way. It had a dreamlike quality that allowed me to like the lead character who was truly a villain.
This is stylish, commercial storytelling that marks a big leap forward for Ortega and should put Lorenzo Ferro on the map.
While Angel brings little new to the lexicon of serial killer biopics, it hits the target as an effortlessly palatable aesthetic experience, more shiny period pageant than probing character study.
The movie is compelling in the moment, but seems irresponsible with any afterthought.
