Authentic and committed, moving and stormy drama of street kids from Mexico City. Wonderful adaptation of successful play about street kids who have more trouble with corrupt cops, than with dirty and heavy work.

Storyline

Rufino (15) roams the streets of Mexico City. He tries his best to look after the youngest homeless children who survive on a diet of glue and hash and sleep in the sewers at night. Rufino earns some money doing hard and dirty work, such as moving meat around a slaughterhouse. Rufino sells a bag of cocaine for Ochoa, a corrupt cop who has Rufino's district in his power and is also the lover of Rufino's adoptive mother. He decides to use the money to flee the city with his girlfriend and her baby. Ochoa sets off after them. Just as Rufino seems able to escape, he finds out that his real father is still alive. Obsessed by this knowledge, Rufino doesn't want to leave until he has found his father. Written by Anonymous

Interesting but overrated
15 October 2001 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

I saw "De La Calle" (aka, "Streeters) at the Chicago International Film Festival, where it had been touted as a remarkable film with chilling insights into the lives of street kids in Mexico City. It was an engaging enough film, with fairly sympathetic characters and reasonable excitement, but the director's inexperience showed. His plot sometimes dragged, his character were not fully developed, and most of all, he his metaphors hit the viewer over the head. Also, he often moved his camera inexplicably -- it's as if he wanted to make bold statements, as a good director would, but didn't understand how to make those statements. All told, it's an adequate movie, worth a few bucks, but not what it might have been.
