A movie with a SIMPLE MESSAGE
27 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In Puerto Escondido there isn't a great cast ,or better not an American great cast but the movie is really good. Also if the story is not too complicated you won't succeed in detaching the look from the screen because you'll be transported from a place to another, from a reality to another one. As it already happens in the others Salvatores' work from the beginning you start picking a message and only at the end you have a clear picture of Salvatores' program. Escape from the problems doesn't mean resolve them because the problems will follow you but the escape can become positive if during the travel you succeeds in finding a so very important truth to change your life. It's not a top movie but with no doubt it makes you reflect.
