One of the best movies ever...
21 May 2004 | by See all my reviews

This movie is not just extremely hilarious, but it has all of the drama and the emotional twists and turns of a real life drama that occurs to people living under a repressive regime and still trying to live.

And of course the fact that the actors were all able to act so natural and engage in typical conversations the way the people of Quisqueya speak makes this movie so realistic. And at the same time we can see as viewers, the terrible situation of this island being split into two, the corruption that goes on and how people are affected by all of this.

What I love the most is that this is the first movie I have ever seen from this island, and it relates so much to the people, and it seems that all or most of the actors are natives of the island, which helps encourage the acting careers of the people of Quisqueya (of both sides of the borders).

I also loved the Chinese man in the mob of slave Haitians. You'll enjoy it too.
