Antonio de la Torre,
Carlitos is a seventeen-year-old youth with movie star swagger, blond curls and a baby face. As a young boy, he coveted other people's things, but it wasn't until his early adolescence that his true calling--to be a thief--manifested itself. When he meets Ramon at his new school, Carlitos is immediately drawn to him and starts showing off to get his attention. Together they will embark on a journey of discoveries, love and crime. Killing is just a random offshoot of the violence, which continues to escalate until Carlitos is finally apprehended. Because of his angelic appearance, the press dubs Carlitos "The Angel of Death." Showered with attention because of his beauty, he becomes an overnight celebrity. Altogether, he is believed to have committed over forty thefts and eleven homicides. Today, after more than forty-six years in jail, Carlos Robledo Puch is the longest- serving prisoner in the history of Argentina.Written by
Fun fact from Argentina citizen, at the time (1972) the maximum sentence for any crime was life sentence, but that carry implicit 45 year parole mandatory, because the law say so, the crimes was so severe the judge decided to avoid this possibility of getting out 45 years later, and decided to lay down a new unprecedented at the time sentence of life time reclusion plus undetermined length of prison, so he after 45 year in prison ask every year how much is the sentence left, since is undetermined it turned in to a political move, and he will never get out if any parent of any assassination victim is alive.

The angel looks more like a clip or a short film. There are no doubts about the good uses of production techniques that clearly exceeds the argentinian average films. This does not imply all the weaknesses that the ambitious project contains that ends up being a film easily forgotten. The little artistic risk assumed by the creator narrating from a trivial perspective a story based on the life of the most famous serial killer in Argentina is clearly exposed by using the same resources over and over during the movie in different characters end up boring because although it manages to create cute atmospheres, the development of the script does not complete those illusions. The creator seeks to rely on roads he already traveled as the detail of the scenarios, the "beauty" aesthetic and the music of the time, creating "cool" atmospheres for the adolescent viewer. The result is a film with a taste of nothing.
