The definitive film about "La Violencia"
24 May 2000 | by (Stanford, California) – See all my reviews

Loosely translated as `Condors are not buried every day', Cóndores is by far the best Colombian film about political violence in the fifties. Colombian star Frank Ramírez masterly portrays León María Lozano, `El Cóndor', a conservative party member that becomes a ruthless killer of political opponents. Based on the bestseller novel from Gustavo Alvarez Gardeazábal.
