Really funny
26 August 2001 | by (Norwalk, CT) – See all my reviews

This is not a great movie. The edition is mediocre, the camera work is kind of lousy, the music sucks definitely, the characters are too cliché and worn out and the very conception of the shots is downright amateur even though director Sergio Cabrera is an experienced film maker.

However, this film has its heart in the right place. The whimsical and joyous parade of ridiculous events satirize the war that rages in Colombia right now and exposes the real spirit of those who inhabit such a beautiful country. But most important, this film is really, really funny. Seeing this film is a catharsis for a country that unfortunately is losing the war against itself and foreign influences.

Colombia's economy, its politicians and the stigma that carries as a drug producing bunch of delinquents is the curse of a people. The only thing left for Colombians, is to laugh. And that, my friend is something the they really know how to do, because you only laugh when you have a soul full of courage!
