User Reviews

natural, refreshing, heart-breaking
8 October 1998 | by (Bogota, Colombia) – See all my reviews

A heart-breaking urban tale that makes optimal use of natural actors and improvisation, together with very basic photography,but doesn´t have any of the technical troubles of the director´s previous release, "Rodrigo D". It renders a very authentic look to city-living in Colombia, without misleading morals or boring social commentary. However, it´s lyricism sets it apart from any pretensions of "real" cinema.
