Swindled DVD

| DVD

There's a sucker born every minute. Director Miguel Bardem (Javier Bardem's brother) delivers a stylish Grifters-style crime thriller that would not only make David Mamet proud - it would have him second-guessing the plot twists right down to the final frame. The slick handsome Ernesto (Ernesto Alterio) has spent a lifetime in the small-racket crime world working the three-card monte on suckers on the streets of Madrid conning store owners and scouting the train stations for easy marks to rob. His pleasant but decidedly small-time lifestyle changes when he meets... the elderly El Manco (Manuel Alexandre) a veteran of the trade who has close contacts to the mysterious and masterful Federico (Federico Luppi) the king of all con men. The three hook up and after ascending to the rarified world of elegant hotels and high living Federico proposes a real estate con that will net them millions. The only hitch is that they need the assistance of Federico's ex-lover Pilar (Victoria Abril). A former con artist herself Pilar (who cheated Federico on a scam years earlier) is now living in luxury with her new elderly husband. The chase is on as the team embarks on their new complicated con . . . but can everyone be trusted? Swindled is an elegant fun fast-moving film where the secrets treachery and twists will keep you on the edge of your seat until the final frame. [show more]

Spanish con-man potboiler directed by Javier Bardem's (Before Night Falls)brother, Miguel. Ernesto (Ernesto Alterio) is a top-drawer con man, proud of his work but he's stuck in the small potatoes world of train stations and convenience stores. One day a chance meeting with the elderly El Manco, (Manuel Alexandre) himself a man at the top of the con game, looks like catapulting him into the big leagues. El Manco is privy to the ear of the famed Federico, (Federico Luppi) undisputed monarch of the scam world who passes on a big-earning property scam to the pair. The catch? It involves cooperation with the beautiful Pilar (Victoria Abril), a former con artist who's still on Federico's hit list for scamming him years earlier.
