Full US Trailer for Spanish Bank Robbery Film 'To Steal from a Thief'
"Find out what they know or what they suspect?" This looks pretty cool. An official US trailer has debuted online for a Spanish crime film called To Steal from a Thief (originally Cien años de perdón in Spain), which is a tricky little thriller about a coordinated bank robbery that goes awry. On a rainy morning in Valencia, six armed men in disguise try to rob a bank, but they're really after the contents of safety deposit box 314, which actually doesn't contain what they think it does. Not only that, but the government wants to stop them and the rainwater floods their escape route. Starring Luis Tosar, Rodrigo De la Serna, Raul Arevalo, Marian Alvarez and Jose Coronado. The masks aren't the most inventive, but the rest of the film seems like it has some sneaky twists and turns. I really want to check this out. See for yourself below.
Here's the official US trailer (+ poster) for Daniel Calparsoro's To Steal from a Thief, found on YouTube:
A group of thieves led by a man called El Uruguayo stalk a bank in Valencia to steal as many safety boxes as possible and later flee through a dug tunnel that communicates the building with an abandoned subway station. However, the press officer of the Prime Minister discovers what the thieves are actually after: they want to get their hands on box 314, property of Gonzalo Soriano, a former member of the government who slipped into a coma after a severe accident, left documents with compromising information. The gang's plans start to go awry when the tunnel is flooded by heavy rain, leaving them with no escape, plus to discover that the box really doesn't contains documents, but an external hard drive full of data about important names in all levels of the Spanish politic. To Steal from a Thief is directed by Spanish filmmaker Daniel Calparsoro (of Invader, Combustion previously), from a script by Alex de la Iglesia's longtime screenwriting partner Jorge Guerricaechevarría. Opening in select US theaters starting on August 5th.

I like Spanish movies. They are usually thought provoking and moving.

Hm, for me, even if it is European it doesn't have to be good. Since, this one looks like it wants too much to look like American film... Hopefully, that's not going be the case ...

It seems pretty derivative to me, Alex, like I've seen this bank robbery, safety deposit boxes, hostages thing many, many times before. Having said that, while watching the trailer I couldn't help but get pulled into it for some reason. I did like that it's from Spain and I didn't know or recognize any of the actors. I find that refreshing from seeing the same ole American actors in movie after movie. I was troubled by the horrible look of the film; the obvious digital photography. It was just unpleasant and outright ugly. Maybe that aesthetic will work for the over-all impact of the film and it's themes and tones. Righto?
