Splendid film about the sea
27 March 2003 | by (Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain) – See all my reviews

It's very important to tell this movie filmed in Mexico with beautiful scenes in Tabasco likes all the people who begins to see. An excellent cast with mexican actors, a well-crafted script and an extraordinary use of Black & White, add up to one of the great movies in all times.

There is a great moment captured by the cameras: the friendship between fishers from that mexican town and their love for the sea. It gives to you a desire: travel to Mexico...
