Movie Info

In the mid-70s, the regional economy drew a lot of scoundrels into Uruguay. Institutions were bankrupted; there was a military government; the subversives were behind bars and, for certain sections of the Brazilian and Argentinian economies with a low reputation, the Uruguayan financial market seemed like an ideal place to make money disappear. This is when Humberto Brause begins a meteoric race in the buying and selling of foreign currency, sponsored by his own father-in-law, a veteran in the business of capital flight. But blinded by his excessive ambition, Humberto tramples everything and everyone in his path until he's gotten his hands on the family business and accepts a suspicious assignment: laundering the largest sum of money he has ever seen.

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (11) | Rotten (8)

  • A continent-hopping dramedy that's not very funny and never catches fire.

  • Handler's comic performance and Veiroj's matter-of-fact style do a good job of setting the film apart from its peers.

  • Yet the images, and the actions within them, lack the acerbic edge that would really drive the knife in. Much like Brause himself, the film tends toward the handsome, yet hollow.

    Sep 12, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Uruguay director Federico Veiroj has an itch of an idea, but doesn't innovate or entrance with The Moneychanger, a sometimes swift, sometimes funny, but mostly middle-of-the-road thriller about the dangers of greed.

    Sep 7, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • If you're going to open your film with a sequence straight out of the Bible, you had better not come to play.

    Oct 19, 2019 | Rating: 6.5/10 | Full Review…
  • A movie that has the ability to report without underlining and being overly accusatory. [Full Review in Spanish]
