Buena pero le falto/Almost there
9 January 2003 | by (Philadelphia, USA) – See all my reviews

This film also follows in the tradition of Los Olvidados and Rodrigo D. in that it attempts to link the audience to the point of view of poor urban youth. It succeeds in creating sympathy for the characters but it makes the mistake of looking for looking for more.

The omnicent point of view is intermingled with characters' daydreams and nightdreams and thus it's hard to get a consistent message across; as an audience I ended up unsure of the depth of each character and whether I was to find them believable; I found myself not liking the ending because it was too conclusive.
