Interesting proposal
21 February 2000 | by (Bogota, Colombia) – See all my reviews

Soplo de vida is a very interesting film in various ways. It is an ambitious project, thrillers aren't a Colombian speciality but Luis Ospina managed to assemble an interesting screenplay with a very talented cast, led by the always versatile César Mora and the very talented Constanza Duque and Fernando Solórzano. As I said, it is ambitious, but it lacks a certain environment necessary for the film. The essence of Bogota's downtown is captured only partially, but the few holes in the story are well covered by the very unusual and extremely interesting way of narrating, using a series of well-organised and well-conceived flashbacks to tell the story of the prostitute Gaviota.

In summary, a valuable film in Colombian cinema, worth watching and worth recognising as an important step in its director's career.
