Excellent movie
6 February 2005 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

This is a first rate, first acted movie. The director, the novel on which the movie is based and the scriptwriter have done a superb job. It successfully portrays the "middle class" that years of violence and economic crisis have left in Peru. Nothing to do with a typical Hollywood movie: it's pure acting, imagination, sense of humor and drama. Anybody interested in knowing Perú and Lantin America and in enjoying a good piece of art should see this movie. It borrows from Latin American, US and European cinema to create an original, truly Peruvian cinematic language. Specially relevant is the top acting quality of all actors that participated in this movie.
