Really tough, but well worth watching.
31 August 2004 | by (cordoba, spain) – See all my reviews

Really tough semi documentary thriller about life in the streets of Caracas. Two stories intermingle: The rise and fall of a drug capo fighting with a younger ruthless rival for the control of his barrio and that of Oliver (a well chosen name!), a child of around 8 or 9 years old, sent off to the street by his mother just to make her newly found husband happy. What follows is unbelievable, yet true. Oliver has to accommodate to his new life, in an extremely harsh world, and ends up literally in the gutter.

Most of the actors are non professional, locations are real, etc. Even so acting is really top notch, as most tech work, and the story is really well filmed.
