Instant flashbacks About Guatelinda (Recuerdos Instantaneos de Guatelinda)
1 September 2002 | by (Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.) – See all my reviews

As a proud Guatemalan, it was nice to see a movie made by Guatemalan actors and see that Guatemala movie making have a future, all we need is the investors and opportunities, because we got the talent, because we got everything in Guatemala, beauty in the rivers, lakes, mountains, jungle and the city itself, and if we want to go back in time, just go to the Great Tikal, The Pyramids and the Ancient Mayan Ancestry.

These movie kind of remains me of the movie "Summer Of 42" with Jennifer O'neil, Kids trying to jump into puberty and having a good time at the same time, except that in the movie "The Silence Of Neto" instead of a good time, the sea, beach, Neto and the rest of the gang had a hard time trying to have a good time, because of the Hard times Guatemala was having due to the military Coup organized by the United States of America and the C.I.A.

So, my thumbs up for "El Silencio De Neto" or "Neto Silence", and I sure hope we have a chance to see a sequel to this good movie.
