An unusual love story
28 November 2004 | by (Caracas, Venezuela) – See all my reviews

"Yotama" is not a simple plot about a common kidnapping after a failed attempt to rob a crowded restaurant in the fascinating Caracas.

The story leads us to a a charming story of seclusion of five people affected by the fact that one of the robbers gang, Yotama, named after the symbolic Spanish words of "Yo te Amo", succeeded to be freed after the intervention of the local police, and becomes a "member" of a tight family who lives in the hills of Caracas.

The counteraction of the well depicted characters is a well elaborated context of a story masterly depicted in sound, credible personages well designed in the plot written by the film director, Luis Armando Roche.

The rest of the story leads us to an ending which is only not a surprising discovery of a deep love between the "abuelo" Pepé (Asdrúbal Meléndez) and Yotama (Beatriz Vázquez) but a final achievement of surprisingly events, all of which reveals a master conduction by Mr. Roche who has produced such an intelligent film. "Yotama" qualifies as a masterwork in the brilliant filmography of Mr. Roche as well as an unusual love story.
