The Delinquents

Watch trailer

An award-winning comeback film from one of Argentina's most distinctive filmmakers, where the plan to evade the law with enough money to never work again doesn't go as expected!

Morán's life has been the same for over 15 years; he works in the same bank, with the same colleagues, and does the same tasks. But one day, he puts $650,000 in his backpack, fully aware that he will be caught. This is carefully planned, but only the beginning of a story that spans several years. We also follow Román, a lonely and melancholic bank colleague who involuntarily gets drawn into Morán's cunning plan, changing his entire existence and perspective on life.

In director Rodrigo Moreno's first feature film in over ten years, he plays with various film genres and familiar clichés from heist films, prison, and crime films. But he also incorporates comedy, romance, and western, avoiding getting stuck in each genre for too long. The story raises several questions about what it means to live in a society constantly grappling with inflation. So, what do you value most? Your money or your life?


Rodrigo Moreno (b. 1972) is one of the most central figures in the "New Argentine Cinema" movement that emerged in the late 90s, alongside other prominent filmmakers such as Lucrecia Martel, Lisandro Alonso, Adrián Caetano and others. He is a graduate of the Universidad del Cine in Buenos Aires, where he continues to teach screenwriting and directing to this day. His films are psychological dramas that often depict an individual's struggles to navigate Argentina's ever-changing society.

Moreno's films have won awards at the Mar del Plata Film Festival, Sundance Film Festival, Berlin International Film Festival, and San Sebastián International Film Festival.
