The Delinquents may be the most offbeat and enjoyable caper film you’ve seen in ages, “a deliciously bizarre existential heist movie that wants you to steal back your life"- Variety. Timid bank clerk Morán, fed up with his dead-end middle-management job, decides one day to simply walk into the vault, pack a bag with enough cash to cover his salary until retirement age, and saunter out. Knowing he will been inevitably caught on security camera, Morán plans on turning himself in, but not before passing the stash along to his coworker Román, now an accomplice who agrees to hold onto the money until Morán gets out of prison and then split it with him. What’s a few years in prison compared to a life in a prison that’s called a job, Morán tells Román? “A hilarious delight from end to end,” (Little White Lies,) The Delinquents, like its protagonists, “takes risks–which pay off”–Screen Daily.
