Its chief virtue is its lead performance, in which twin brothers are played by a promising new Argentinian actor named Viggo Mortensen.

Mortensen is on top form - twice over - but while the noir mood gathers like a black cloud, the story frustrates.

Everybody does indeed have a plan in Ana Piterbarg’s ponderous Argentine noir – problem is, they’re all terrible.

Mr. Mortensen keeps you watching, even when the movie’s storytelling underwhelms. But Everybody Has a Plan is less about story than about...

Everybody has a Plan

This Argentinean movie features a simple story, well told, excellent acting, and Viggo Mortensen turns in another brilliant performance. The action slow builds as rivals from youth have different...

Todos Tenemos Un Plan

The intelligent plot has all the elements for a true entertainment movie, but when the situations unfold the film ends up in a long boring, brutal disconnected story with a very poor dialog....

A total waste of our time!

We did not like this movie at all! So dark and depressing but not even with a plot that could grab you or interest you. The direction and pace of the film were too slow. The story did not make any...

Surprising performances, Tragedy in the Tigre
