A great movie
11 February 1999 | by (Guatemala, Guatemala) – See all my reviews

I liked this movie a lot for many reasons. It shows how life was for a young teenager in 1950's Guatemala; Another reason is because it shows the coming of age of Neto and how his struggle to speak up. To truly express himself. Also I liked this movie because I«m from Guatemala and I«m happy to see such a good movie produced in my country.
