I always get my hopes up when I find a film with an epileptic character; while epilepsy and seizures on the whole are a regularly-visited subject by movie-makers, it is rare that the condition is treated with any realism on their part. "El Aura" continues in this tradition of ignorance as we are introduced to a man with seemingly no awareness of his condition. His every aura is treated like his first, and his postictal state passes like a sneeze. The rest of the plot isn't worth sticking around for if you've seen any other heist movie- cars go fast, guards chase after people, guns are fired, voices are raised and money exchanges hands- the only twist you'll receive here is Ricardo Darín's lame attempt at seizing.
