An attractive stylish portrayal of shallow serial killer, based on a real life, baby-faced murderer in 1970s Argentina.

Carlitos is a beautiful 17-year-old whose youthful appearance masks a criminal mastermind. When he starts at a new school, Carlitos meets his match in Ramon, a handsome rebel who shares his unlawful interests.

As the pair embark on a breathless journey of theft and murder, the press dub Carlitos ‘The Angel of Death’, transforming him into a media sensation. Bristling with vibrant energy this eccentric crime caper is a veritable feast for the senses, betraying a disturbing reality beneath the seductive punch of its immediate stylistic pleasures.

The film doesn’t judge the crimes of its baby-faced anithero- instead it’s a subversively funny, cool take on the crime movie.

Belfast Film Festival films will not feature ads or trailers and will, therefore, start at the advertised time.
