24 March 1999 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

This is one of those films that absorbs you from the very beginning. The narrative, juxtaposing time, place and themes at wish, is a delight to view.

The camera works is excellent. The angles for the scenes (Lima: the stairs to the lawyers office) are so unusual and though well chosen as they described the inner thoughts of the characters.

Very excellent film.
