‘Los Ladrones Viejos‘ portrays a melancholic image of the Mexico of forty years ago, when being a thief was a real profession. The former thieves are now old men serving their sentence in prison. It seems as if the director is trying to raise sympathy for these thieves, called zorreros. In prison, famous criminal El Carrizos tells about his relationship with a secret service agent, nicknamed Dracula. These two characters worked hand in hand for a while before betraying one another. However, the corruption and backstabbing is contradictory to the honor and professionalism the zorreros pursued in their criminal careers.
