If anyone were to define Money Exchange as an “economic” thriller, they’d imagine it would be a dense hard-to-understand film filled with financial terms. And even though it’s true that Lautaro García Candela’s second work is, in fact, an economic thriller, it is also true that it’s very far from such a description. The film is set in the world of the “arbolitos,” those characters that, as they stand on pedestrian street Florida, offer the tourists in Buenos Aires to buy their dollars at the best price. Such is the life of a young man moved by the ambition of raising the money that will allow him to improve his life as quickly as possible, and who will not hesitating in taking any risks necessary to accomplish that. Tender and suspenseful in equal amounts, Money Exchange inherits from such films as Pizza, Beer and Cigarettes or Nine Queens the will to examining Buenos Aires where its life flows—in the streets
