Set in northwestern Argentina in 2013, a period of economic strife when even the cops went on strike (with predictably chaotic results), The Snatch Thief mines suspense and pathos from its potent scenario but opts for spiky humanism over sentimental gloss. Neither Miguel nor Elena are particularly admirable human beings, but it’s fun watching the wary, tender dance between them as each opportunistically milks obfuscation and confusion to make the most of a difficult situation.
