A man catches his girlfriend cheating on him with his boss, and gets fired because of this. When he finds his boss cheating on his ex-girlfriend, he blackmails him, but things will end up upside-down, when a murder shows up.
Colombia can gives a lot of beautiful and intelligent films like "La Estrategia del Caracol", "Funeral Siniestro" or "La Primera Noche". I was so excited when i see for the first time "La Pena Maxima"... but after all, i think that is only garbage... not even good performances can save it. This movie is not clever, is not funny... is just the opposite: is ridiculous and unfunny.
The story told us about a man (Enrique Carriazo) who, with his brother, and as a lot of Colombian people, loves soccer (Here, the plot is great, because can treat a great topic) ... one day, in an important soccer encounter, he bets a lot of money which he and his wife (Beautiful Sandra Reyes) have saving for a long, long time. At the same time, he must go to a funeral. What he going to do... to go to the soccer game? ... Please, don't ask! The development of the plot is absurd... and i love absurd movies, but this one is not a good one. Don't makes me laugh. And, after all thats not the point. It doesn't matters if the movie don't makes me laugh, the important is watch a movie that tell us a good story, but this one is no more than pathetic. Watch it then if you dare... sincerely, i prefer play soccer at the park with my friends.
*Sorry for the mistakes...well, if there any.
