I recently reviewed Argentinian crime thriller Carancho for Flick Feast:
A dark and dingy Argentinean crime-noir which follows the increasingly desperate actions of an ambulance chasing lawyer called Sosa (Ricardo Darin) who, having been expelled from the bar association, is embroiled in a dangerous scam involving the victims of Argentina’s deadly road accidents. We are told that there are around 8000 deaths and 120,000 injuries every year in Argentina from road traffic accidents and this has spurned a lucrative market for “Caranchos” or ‘Vultures’ such as Sosa and ‘The Foundation’ which he works for. These vultures fleece insurance companies for thousands and keep a hefty percentage for themselves ensuring that the usually very poor victims receive only a small fraction of what they are owed.
