With precision and finesse, director Miguel Bardem delivers a stylish, Grifters-style thriller that would make David Mamet proud. The slick, handsome Ernesto (Ernesto Alterio) has spent a lifetime in crime, working the three-card monte on suckers on the streets of Madrid. His small-time lifestyle changes when he meets the elderly El Manco (Manuel Alexandre), a veteran of the trade with connections to the mysterious Federico (Federico Luppi, The Devil's Backbone, Cronos), the king of all con men. After the three ascend to the rarified world of high living, Federico proposes a real estate scam worth millions.
