Well thought, well acted, awful script
3 May 2000 | by (Florida, USA) – See all my reviews

I went to see this film at the Hispanic Film festival of Miami, and it was certainly a success. Judging by their reactions, people on the theater were extremely pleased with the film, which is the first film Noir made in Colombia.

What a wonderful experience it was, especially for the wonderful actress Flora Martinez, who really brings life to her character.

Also, the histrionic talent of Cesar Mora as the blind man who sells lottery tickets is fantastic, he has such strong features that allow him to really mold into his character (I just saw him during the same festival, leading another Colombian film, "Golpe de estadio").

I was very pleased with the movie in general, although I must say that the script doesn't live up to my expectations; its erratic, monotone narrative really blocks the brilliant cast, mostly because it wants to achieve so much that it leaves many sub-plots points unresolved. Otherwise a fairly enjoyable film that exemplifies the strong influence of American cinema in Latin America, even though shoestring budgets and cultural differences make this kind of film a lot more enjoyable-for me at least-than their cousins from the north.
