This isn't just a movie, this is a film. Shows all the sorts of colors that a perceptive mind can capture in black and white. Rivero's acting is so good you don't see he's doing it. Director Delano, whose more notable works are ventures in still photography, translates his dedication to realism to a well written theme set in a small town 1950's Puerto Rico. The film is all about the texture that can be made of every day life. And brings not a boring moment. Somewhere there it touches De Sica's Ladri di Biciclette, no direct comparison is pretended, but the touch is there.
What a loss that it is still not available on broader based VHS or DVD medium. Its brilliance to be unearthed by another generation.
