An episodic look at a young man's life in Mexico's national highway patrol. We follow Pedro Rojas from cadet training and his rookie assignment in a northern border area, to his quick courtship, his taking of bribes ("la mordida"), and his slow exposure to drug smuggling. Rojas re-forms his idealism as youthful naivete gives way to an adult's complicated choices. Written by
I liked this movie. Especially the acting by the guy who played the policeman Rojas is great. This is not an action movie and this is good so. Its a very critical movie.
The corrupt social life in Mexico becomes very transparent through the figure of Rojas, who shifts between adjusting to the system (becoming a corrupt policeman) and holding to his ideals (helping the poor). Brilliant is also his almost parodical performance of "policeman machismo".
See this movie. It's worth it!
