this is an excellent movie from mr. mayolo. this movie gives to the public the chance of understanding many things cause it´s very dark and surreal. awesome fotography and art direction supported by good performances. this film touches many witch-craft stories from colombian beliefs. watch it sober and carefully cause, believe me, you´ll get high on this one.
