Mediocre
27 June 2012 | by (Colombia) – See all my reviews

This is the prime example of a great idea executed by a moron. The story is pretty cool but photography, art and even casting is awful... I mean, why is the director's girlfriend playing two different roles anyway, if she's such a bad actress? She even looks to the camera at one point! Having near impossible locations, this foolish attempt of film wastes them. For example, a special permission was granted to film inside the Casa de Bolívar (Colombia President's quarters) but it was wasted in shot from 50 feet away. The Quinta de Bolívar (Bolívar's favorite house, now a museum) is one of the most emblematic colonial buildings in Bogotá, but shot in the night with a terrible photography looks like crap. Amparo Grisales is terrible in a double-sided role, since she's far from a good actress. Art is average, since they ask the audience to believe in a world without detail.

In fewer words, although the screenplay is a masterpiece, the overall film in near enjoyable due lack of talent in the directing department.
