A Thief and His Wife | Chicago Reader

A Thief and His Wife

A career criminal (Ramon Llao), sent to prison for stealing a suitcase, implores his patient and forgiving wife (Amparo Noguera) to visit him in this buoyant and graceful 2001 Chilean feature. Director Rodrigo Sepulveda has an assured, low-key style that privileges his gifted actors, and the plot reversals, with their themes of freedom and chance, are beautifully framed by the movie's deeper concern with memory and time. It's a modest work, running just 74 minutes, but the characters' emotional attraction is never in doubt. In Spanish with subtitles.
