"A meandering and hilarious delight from end to end." - David Jenkins, Little White Lies

"The Delinquents alternatingly dares the viewer to read it as a caper flick, a moral parable, a comedy of coincidences, and an existential probe." - Pat Brown, Slant Magazine

An inventive and captivating take on the heist genre from Argentine director Rodrigo Moreno. Bank clerk Morán (Daniel Elias) plots the perfect crime - to embezzle enough money to never work again, enlist his colleague Román (Esteban Bigliardi) to hide the loot, serve a prison sentence, and then retrieve his hidden stash. Drawing inspiration from a classic Argentinian noir, Hugo Fregonese’s Hardly a Criminal (1949), The Delinquents takes the original source material and expands it into something wholly original and enthralling. This stylish, slow-burn crime drama is a standout from this year’s Cannes film festival.

These screenings will be presented with additional descriptive subtitles of non-dialogue audio. Visit our Accessible Screenings at LIFF 2023 page for more information and other accessible screenings at the festival.
