very interesting for USA users
22 January 2004 | by (spain) – See all my reviews

It provides a very deep, human investigation in the roots of crime both sides of the law. Tender and funny, cruel and dramatic, this film is also a great window to the story of my country, where death row was forbidden since democracy in 1978. I would invite specially G. Bush, but also anyone who approves death row, to watch it and think about it.
