The Aura (2005)

Art-house noir from Argentina.
An epileptic taxidermist (really) gets a chance to live his fantasy of committing a heist by inserting himself into someone else’s scheme, and of course he doesn’t know the half of what’s really going on.
The proceedings are so hushed that every curse is like a gun going off, and every gunshot like a bomb.
The corners don’t all meet up as they might pretend to in an American product, but this one’ll stay with you. Recommended.
