The adventures of psychotic couple Perdita Durango and Romeo Dolorosa,  who kidnap a young teenage couple for a religious sacrifice, and then cross Mexico to go to Las Vegas.

When mischievous Álex de la Iglesia (The day of the beast, Balada Triste) adapts an unhinged thriller by Barry Gifford (whose world had previously been brought to the screen in David Lynch’s Sailor and Lula)  with Javier Bardem (No Country for old men), Rosie Perez (Human Nature, Cartel) et James Gandolfini (The Sopranos), you can expect a rejoicing show. The result : a jarring and absurd Bonnie and Clyde on hot chili, quoting from Roger Waters as well as from Robert Aldrich. Masterly !
