Director: EVERARDO GONZÁLEZ
Everardo Gonzalez also pushes the boundaries of fi lm. Old Thieves and the Legends of a Trade (Los Ladrones viejos, las layendas del artegio) chronicles the lives of pickpockets and robbers from the 1950s and 1960s who looted the mansions of rich Mexicans, including those of two Presidents, ending up in the jail from where they narrate their experiences with a touch of humor.
Explaining their codes of honor and behavior at the time, the film uses archive images of Mexico City in a remarkable and extremely entertaining film.
