Seasoned Argentine producer Sergio Bellotti makes a capable directing debut with “My Treasure,” which freely reconstructs the week leading up to a widely chronicled 1994 event, in which a deputy manager robbed the bank he had worked in for the past 22 years, becoming a minor folk hero. This unexceptional film looks to be confined to Latin-American territories as it stitches together a story of duplicitous friends, a cheating wife and a demanding mistress into a fairly commonplace drama of midlife crisis and middle-class ennui leading to drastic extremes.

Slowly sinking under the weight of his monotonous existence, Carlos (Gabriel Goity) trudges home each morning from motel trysts with his lover to rest his head for a moment before slinking reluctantly off to another routine day at work. But as he takes stock of his bankrupt life and sullenly prepares for his 40th birthday, a solution presents itself in the bank’s bulging vault. While the cast lacks charisma and the plot crawls along a little too slowly, Bellotti gives the material occasional edge through use of color filters, moody lighting and noirish camera angles.
