Storyline

Three second-rate delinquints - a retired, crippled pickpocket, a man born and raised in a prision who's never seen a day of freedom, and a young loser - escape from the police van that is taking them back to prison when it crashes.

They jump a freight train and make their way to the Mediterranean coast, and hide out in an isolated mansion by the sea.

In spite of the fact that it's the off-season for tourism, the house seems to be well maintained and strangely well stocked. Almost as strange as the sudden appearance of Nina, a young foreigner, whom the three fugitives have no choice but to hold against her will.

However, when Nina is followed by some shady Russian mafia figures, our 'heroes' become accidentally involved in a plutonium-trafficking scheme. In this fast moving feature nobody is what they seem and three escaped criminals turn out to be the only ones amidst lies, plots and seduction who act in the name of honesty.

Passable film about tree thieves performed by Sancho Gracia , Pablo Carbonell, Carlos Fuentes who getaway from prison
25 February 2019 | by miguellopezcortesSee all my reviews

Fun and entertaining but average film about a trio of delinquents escape from a prison van and go the Mediterranean coast . They are : a retired, crippled pickpocket, (Sancho Gracia) , a man (Paco Carbonel) born and raised in a prision who's never seen a day of freedom, and a young loser (Carlos Fuentes) . When the vehicle has an accident they flee and jump a freight train and make their way to the Mediterranean coast, , there they find an isolated mansion where stand hiidden out . The strange house seems to be well maintained and strangely well stocked. Buth then shows up a beautiful foreigner, Elsa Pataki , and things go awry . After that , they become accidentally involved in a plutonium-trafficking scheme , and are relentlessly pursued by Policemen ,mobsters and shady Russian mafia .

This one deals with three unfortunate swindlers played by Sancho Gracia , Pablo Carbonell, Carlos Fuentes who getaway from a jail van when Guardia Civil is taking then back to penitentiary ; they are three second-rate delinquents to exact their comdenation and escaping from the police van that is taking them back to prison when it crashes . Later on , they become involved with a twisted intrigue about Plutonium smugging and hide out in an isolated mansion by the sea .This is a comedy with some of action and thriller in which 3 delinquents fall in extreme distresses . It is an uneven picture that's why it seems to be some silly and tiring. In this stirring feature nobody is what they seem and three getaway outlaws result to be the only ones amidst schemes , lies, betrayals ,chases , plots and seduction who act in the name of honesty and friendship . The enjoyable trio of main actors deliver agreeable acting such as : Sancho Gracia who plays a retired crook , Pablo Carbonell as the distressed thief who was born and raised in prison and the outcast fugitive performed by Carlos Fuentes. And gorgeous Elsa Patakias Nina, a young foreigner, whom the three escaped men have no choice but to hold against her will .Support cast is pretty good , such as : Manuel Galiana as Judge , Rafael Álvarez 'El Brujo' as Inspector , Óscar Ladoire as cashier , the veteran Luis Cuenca and a mobster played by Aitor Mazo who leads the Russian mafia .

Being well produced by Carlos Fernandez and Juan Fernandez from Castelao Productions . Packing an atmospheric and adequate cinematography by Angel Alderete . And catching as well as evocative score by Juan Pablo Muñoz Zielinski . Being uneven and regularly made by Benito Rabal . Benito is son of the prestigious actor Francisco Rabal . He previously directed El hermano bastardo de Dios and various TV series , such as : De tal Paco tal astilla , Nazca , Que pintamos aquí , Curro Jiménez: El regreso de una leyenda and a documentary : Paco Mi Padre . Raing : 5 acceptable and passable .
