Great, moving movie; Great scenario/writing.
7 September 2003 | by (New York, NY, USA) – See all my reviews

This film is never to be confused with the average commercial film (which may be why US commercial distribution rights have not yet been acquired yet, alas).

It has an extremely-well-thought scenario and script dealing with the "big issues" (old sense of "issues") of truth, humanity, and their limitations...and about how a man or woman's past (or what they BELIEVE was the truth ABOUT their past) can cast a shadow of the entire rest of their lives.

As has been pointed out by another commenter, this is not non-fiction, but the actors, script, and director are so good that a viewer may well feel that the story is "real" by the time the film ends.

I found the film quite moving, and the music cool (but what do I know about cool? I am 41 years old and don't listen to hip-hop;)

Go see it, people interested in History, Mexico, Philosophy...or maybe in what makes human beings tick.
