The “disappearances” that marked the Videla regime in Argentina continued after the dictator’s fall in 1981, but the motive changed from politics to money. Arquimedes Puccio (Guillermo Francella, brilliantly cold-blooded here), kidnapped wealthy men and women and held them for ransom in his home, using domineering control over his family and - for a time - the tacit protection of police to do it. This riveting true story boasts great period detail (including a truly inspired soundtrack) and shocking violence, and was a huge box office hit in Argentina.
