Argentina’s official 2019 Academy Award submission for Best Foreign Language Film, El Angel is one of the year’s most high profile international gay films. Produced by the incomparable Pedro Almodovar, the film tells
the story of Carlitos, a swaggering seventeen-year-old will become the most notorious killer in Buenos Aires.

Inspired by true events. Buenos Aires. Carlitos (Lorenzo Ferro) is a seventeen-year-old with movie star swagger, blond curls and a baby face. When he meets the handsome Ramon (Chino Darin) at his new school, Carlitos is immediately drawn to him and instigates a fight. A relationship soon develops with the two embarking on a crime spree fueled by jealousy and unspoken desires. As their relationship grows more combustible, their crimes become more violent and deadly, until Carlitos is finally apprehended at the age of 20. Because of his cherubic appearance, the press dubs Carlitos “The Angel of Death.” Showered with attention, he becomes an overnight celebrity. To this day, he remains imprisoned in Argentina – the longest-serving inmate in the country’s history.​

“A nonchalant, sexy Goodfellas.” “Ortega has clearly seen his share of Tarantino movies…!!”
“He employs a familiar arch, artful approach to this material, with sleek gliding shots and kicky retro tunes.”
“A stylish period piece boasting solid performances, colorful visuals and a terrific vintage soundtrack.”
“In the manner of a Scorcese or Sorrentino, Ortega creates baroque, propulsive storytelling, brassy soundtrack.”
