Interesting yet confusing movie
3 April 2000 | by (Illinois) – See all my reviews

I have mixed feelings about La muralla verde. I thought the ending tied the whole move together, but it was painful to sit through the rest of it. Things didn't make sense until the end of the movie, and for me that is too late. There were many flashbacks, and sometimes there was nothing to tell you that it was a flashback. The juxtaposition with the scenes in the jungle and the scenes in the city was done nicely. The differences between the 2 were striking, especially when placed back to back like that. However, some of the camera shots were distracting and irritating, so much so that I had to look away. I found this movie to be interesting because I couldn't imagine a family " roughing it" in the jungle and giving up city life. However, I think this movie was just too distracting and distorted to enjoy watching it and get the whole effect. It definitely shows the major contrasts between the city and the jungle, which is good for learning, but it could have been less confusing and still would have had the same effect.
