The Aura (Spanish: El Aura) is a 2005 Argentine neo-noir psychological thriller film directed and written by Fabián Bielinsky and starring Ricardo Darín. The plot revolves around Esteban Espinosa (Darín), an epileptic taxidermist who often fantasizes about committing the perfect crime. While hunting in Patagonia, Espinosa accidentally kills Dietrich (Rodal), a guide from the area, and discovers he is in fact a criminal. This unexpectedly connects him with the chance of executing a real crime: assaulting an armored truck carrying the profits of a casino in the area. Espinosa projects into his fantasies, assembling a puzzle piece by piece, inevitably enclosing himself in it.
