Nice Classic RAre Colombian Film
19 December 2008 | by (Colombia) – See all my reviews

Nice Classic entertaining Colombian film , it is not only a tragic LIfe Story (as the classic name suggest from the renowned Biblical GEnesis circumstances)but it is also Funny and even Erotic and has an interesting Plot which is not shown in a consecutive logic but given in different times,a revolutionary element in Cinema just like it happens in "Irréversible" (2002) or "Mulholland Dr." (2001)and other recent movies: this has been called "Nonlinear narrative" or "Disrupted narrative" and has been used in Strange forms or Art since even as early as the 20s, as in "Un chien andalou" (1929)or "Citizen Kane" (1941) , but here we are talking about a 1984 movie from Colombia,which makes it quite a bizarre and unique -and even revolutionary in my View- movie not only because of the epoch but because of the place; so I think this one, among other 70s and 80s Colombian films like "visa USA"(1986) and those based on Garcia MArques Scripts are far long way BEtter than the commercial crap you see on commercial TV channels nowdays.Anyhow, this bizarre film also has a Sort of Bunuel SUrreAlism and shows Colombia's particular idiosyncratic , social and political culture at its best -in my Opinion-; Great pick for non-conventional film addicts like Myself.
