The Old Thieves

Los Ladrones Viejos, las leyendas del artegio, 2007, México, 97 min


The old thieves, the legends of Artegio, is the story of a generation of thieves who achieved their greatest successes in the 1960s, of the codes of conduct and ethics that characterized them, of the various “categories” of criminals that populated the streets of the city, the alliances with the police commanders that allowed them to get ahead, the betrayals that followed and the price they finally paid for it.
