Yolanda and the Thief
Johnny Riggs, a con man on the lam, finds himself in a Latin-American country named Patria. There, he overhears a convent-bred rich girl praying to her guardian angel for help in managing her tangled business affairs. Riggs decides to materialize as the girl's "angel", gains her unquestioning confidence, and helps himself to the deluded girl's millions. Just as he and his partner are about to flee Patria with their booty, Riggs realizes he has fallen in love with the girl and returns the money, together with a note that is part confession and part love letter. But the larcenous duo's escape from Patria turns out to be more difficult than they could ever have imagined.

Yolanda and the Thief torrent reviews
(ag) wrote: The story wasn't bad, superb performances from Rani Mukherjee and Amitabh Bachchan.
(mx) wrote: A pretty good film given the subject. A post-apocalyptic movie about dragons with extremely well done special effects and brilliant performances by Christian Bale and Matthew Mcconaughey.
(es) wrote: Crime films are so often plagued by caricatures and cliches, but Jonathan Glazer defies convention here, and Sexy Beast focuses just as much on where its characters are at as it does on how they got there. Gary (played sympathetically by Ray Winstone) is a former gangster happily spending the rest of his days in retirement, and his personal Eden is endangered when he is approached by Don Logan (Ben Kingsley has rarely been better), a volatile sociopath and former criminal associate intent on recruiting Gary for one last job. Described by Kingsley himself as "the unhappiest man in the world," Don Logan's bitterness rages most cruelly when his pride is damaged. Egos and emotions clash violently as the two careen wildly toward a defining and final act of brutality in a climactic scene that is a bit too excessive and defies reality. There is indeed trouble in paradise. Superbly written and stylishly directed, Sexy Beast, while not perfect, is one of those rare and precious gems that is able to do much with very little.
(ag) wrote: Entertaining and fun. Not too deep or scary, but brought back some old legends I had heard when I was a kid.
(au) wrote: Very interesting. The science behind this movie seems reachable. A future where genetically modified babies are the norm, and natural births are non-existent. The concept of forging your own path doesn't exist. Your whole life is known ten seconds after your birth. Our main character, Vincent (or Jerome,) decides he won't be tied down by his natural birth and assumed the identity of someone else. The only problem? That's just as illegal here as it is in real life. While this prospect seems easy to screw up, Andrew Niccol handles the story with care, crafting a sci-fi drama with weight and tension. The performers do a fine job as well, complimenting the already real-feeling characters.
(fr) wrote: Maybe a little too British in design for a Hollywood thriller which is very formulaic for the glut of these mysteries with a twist that happened around this time. Branagh is clearly less comfortable with himself outside of Shakespeare.
(ru) wrote: This film almost lost me with how utterly annoying Eric Roberts is in it. But, he's an integral part of this story about family bonds and friendship and a burglary-gone-wrong in the center of it all. Rourke was a rising star at this point and showcased his trademark smooth style. Points also for Frank Vincent being in this.
(kr) wrote: Movies like these make me wish Rotten Tomatoes would let me post 0 stars.Why, Uwe Boll? Why?
(ag) wrote: best movie ever. it's amazing to see the diversity of the culture back then, and i'm astounded by what they could do on those old machines. i think i've already watched this movie 4 times, and i'd gladly double that
(ag) wrote: Really odd blend of doing some things really well and other things horribly. Some characters were profound and interesting, others shallow and unrealistic. The editing was a joke, the melodrama is consistently too much, and Lucy Liu has one good scene.
(de) wrote: Nothing special. Body horror then and now. No real redemption to be had here.
