Burnt Money

A FILM BY Marcelo Pineyro


Synopsis

Burnt Money is the steamy Argentinean hit film about an infamous heist gone horribly wrong. Set in Argentina in 1965, Burnt Money is based on the true story about the ruthless bank-robbing duo, Nene (Leonardo Sbaraglia) and Angel (Eduardo Noriega, of Open Your Eyes). Everyone calls them 'Los Mellizos' (the twins), but they are actually lovers: lethal, thieving lovers. It's the story of a doomed relationship, confined to four rooms where intense passion and violence push the extremes. They flee from Argentina across the border to Uruguay after a large-scale hold-up that turns bloody. With the cops closing in, the two lovers must confront their demons to survive. Director Marcelo Piñeyro (Tango Feroz, Wild Horses), has created an original piece of filmmaking that is full of action and sexy to watch. His signature style has rendered him huge recognition as a director in Argentina as well as internationally.
