Rough but not uninteresting Peruvian prison piece.
7 January 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

"La Gringa" the Lima prison escaper, who earned his title because he once got away dressed as a drug lord's visitor mistress, is dragged back after one night's freedom. He gets thrown into a wing with a professor, reluctantly sharing with the Marxist terrorists who do their own cooking, and the escaper and the Prof. bond.

Thoughtful enough piece, competently handled though it outlasts it's the novelty value of it's origin.

Durant clearly sees himself as being a South American Costa-Gavras.
