"El Angel" advanced exclusive internet premiere in Taiwan!

Buenos Aires, 1971. Carlitos is a seventeen-year-old with movie star swagger, blond curls and a baby face. As a young boy, he coveted other people's things, but it wasn't until his early adolescence that his true calling-- to be a thief -- manifested itself. When he meets Ramon at his new school, Carlitos is immediately drawn to him and starts showing off to get his attention. Together they will embark on a journey of discovery, love and crime. Killing is just a random offshoot of the violence, which continues to escalate until Carlitos is finally apprehended. Because of his angelic appearance, the press dubs Carlitos "The Angel of Death." Showered with attention because of his beauty, he becomes an overnight celebrity. Altogether, he is believed to have committed over forty thefts and eleven homicides.

"Ortega has a real eye for flashy, chaotic set pieces and a real ear for excellent Latin rock needle drops on the film's killer Scorsese-inspired soundtrack."-Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly
