El Aura (2005)

Playing make believe
Esteban (Ricardo Darín) is a taxidermist with an active imagination and a photographic memory.  He goes on a hunting trip with a friend and ends up in some situations that he never anticipated.  There are some real money shots in this film - near the beginning when Esteban is telling his friend how he'd pull off a heist and later, the transition between him sitting in his home, in the airport lounge, on the plane, then in the jeep. 

An engrossing story, beautifully executed scenes, and superb acting give El Aura a glowing 5 out of 5 Poblanos!
