As a guatemalan I am proud of this movie
5 February 1999 | by (Guatemala, Guatemala) – See all my reviews

I think this movie is great, Its the classical story of a kid entering puberty, but at the same time shows a lot of Guatemala's culture of the time (50's) which in some ways hasn't changed. It manages to present the movie in a turbulent political time while not completly turning to one side.
