Excellent Argentine noir drama

"A well thought out film, Manhunt (Caceria) focuses on Daniel, a man with a criminal past who's also the father of a young son. After escaping the mob that he no longer wants a part of--and from whom he stole a hefty sum--he retreats to his small home town of Redencion (Redemption) in northern Argentina, far from the urban swell of Buenos Aires. There he sees, for the first time in years, his former sweetheart who is now married to a cynical wife-beating womanizer. And, for the first time in years as well, he sees his old friend Miguel, who's now a member of the local police.And there too, after a day or two, he meets up with members of his old mob who've come to take back their money and then kill him.Caceria is directed with a great deal of intelligence and understanding. It's a film whose director knows how men and women think and feel, and what they want, and what they'll do to get what they want. It pulls no punches, it does not waste time, it's honest, it's not rushed, yet neither is it slow. The pacing is perfect, the acting is excellent, and the momentum of the story is gripping.Highly recommended."
Redemption or "Perdition?"

""Manhunt" is an okay drama that puts one in mind of "Road To Perdition", but on a very low budget. The acting is fine and the direction tight.My beef is with the very poor quality of sound on the DVD. The picture is good but the sound is terrible! Were it not for the subtitles, I would have been lost."
