I saw this film on a DVD I bought from a local Blockbuster store. Having already read about it and been intrigued by the premise, I snapped it up from the bargain sale bin. The principal players are a group of kids who give natural, unstudied performances that ring true and don't have that "child actor" quality that can get on your nerves. A boy wants to become invisible in order to get close to his pretty, but stand-offish young neighbor ("airy," is how one of his friends describe her, according to the subtitles). With the help of some forbidden black magic performed by him and his three friends, he does indeed become invisible, or so it seems. How does this happen? The plot line cunningly brings it about, but you must see the film to appreciate how. This is a nice break from the over-produced and cynical films we see from Hollywood. The kids nicely conjure up the quality of innocence in which a midnight black magic ceremony in the local cemetery is a great adventure, and deadly serious business. Remember that electric thrill you got when you first got away with something forbidden, and absolutely nobody knew? If you never experienced it as a kid, what a pity! Discover (or rediscover) it with this excellent Venezuelan/Colombian production.
