I saw this movie years ago and I am so glad I found it still available at Amazon.ca because I always wanted to see it again. One of the best foreign films I've ever seen. It's smart. Really brilliant!

The movie keeps you guessing to the end. It is not one of those predictable one-dimensional Hollywood flicks.

Not one dull minute. Thumbs up!

I admit that I'm a sucker for con movies. The idea of the clever heist intrigues me. What this film has, that many others don't, is the appropriate characterization to understand the deal in play. As it unfolds, you're exposed to so many possible angles and, more importantly, plausible angles that you can't let your guard down the entire length of the film. A very enjoyable movie!

I am always hesitant to see a movie after it receives so many rave reviews, becuase it is often dificult for such movies to meet my expectations. This film, is one of the few examples in which it actually exceeded all of the hype.
It's a con movie, in the tradition of classics like "The Sting" but it moves much quicker. It's not until the credits start rolling that the viewer gets an idea of how complete the heist was and exactly who was in charge. I saw this movie first in Europe, and was incredibly disappointed that it was not released in the US, so I could watch it again, because it is a movie that you can watch again and again and gather more clues with each viewing.
I was sad to hear that a US company bought the rights to the story. It will be difficult for them no to butcher it, because this was perfect.

I lived in Argentina for nearly four years, mostly in Buenos Aires, the capital city and location of this plot. It is well crafted, well interpreted and well produced. The characters are quite believable. The "Porteno" (sorry, no enye) is world famous for his slick tounge and lack of scruples. I KNOW some people like that in Argentina. If you shake hands with these scam artists count your fingers before leaving the meeting :-).
Great movie.
Enjoy.

Sub-par con artist flick, two con men attempt to pull off the impossible---selling a valuable stamp set to a wealthy financier. The twists and turns that occur are outrageous---and the ending is so weak, it makes the viewer feel conned. Then again, perhaps that is what the director intended. Not recommended.

Nine Queens is a heist flick, and as such is quite predictable in its unpredictability. After the first few minutes of the movie, you know something's not quite as it seems, that there's a part of the con that you're just not seeing, but that you know is there...and that's part of what's great about this movie.
Set in Buenos Aires, this is the story of two con artists, Marcos, played by Ricardo Darin (Son of the bride) and Juan, played by Gastón Pauls (Nuts for Love), who decide, reluctantly, that they should work together in order to have a big hit, namely, the sale of a fake stamp collection, The Nine Queens. The acting, while not extraordinary, is successful in presenting these two criminals as they perform a variety of cons. The real gem here is the writing; witty dialogues and smart cons fill this film, more precisely when things start to go wrong at every turn for Juan and Marcos and they have to improvise for the con to work. The movie also stars Leticia Bredice as Marcos' unapproving sister.
If you're a fan of the genre, you may be able to discover the twist before the end of the movie, but still, it's a fun ride, and it's refreshingly different from other heist films (i.e. Ocean's eleven, Confidence, et al) as it presents a livelier, fresher Southamerican spirit.
As a foot note, this movie was remade in english by Steven Soderbergh's and George Clooney's production company, Section 8, which coincidentally also made Ocean's eleven and Ocean's twelve, two similarly themed films. The U.S. version stars John C. Reilly (Chicago, Boogie nights) and Diego Luna (Y tu mamá también, Havana nights).
