Storyline

Cheito, a street-wise Venezuelan conscript, is thrown together with Pedro, a straight-arrow volunteer in the Colombian army, when one deserts his company and the other lives through an ambush. They must survive guerrillas, drug producers, corrupt narcotics officers, and each other as they bungle through the jungle: first they are enemies, then allies, then friends, until women and politics test their loyalties. Can pawns survive when powers clash? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

The best Venezuelan Movie in years
15 April 2005 | by (Venezuela) – See all my reviews

transitively latinamerican and borderline dramatic, punto y raya hit us as a fairly well told story about friendship altering people's life. of course there's a movie about this little hypothetical war between countries, and the intimate war between two guys for a long-time-no-seen-virgin-girlfriend, but mostly it's about two enemies trying to stay alive through extreme circumstances: the war itself, the jungle, crazy women living in colombian guerrilla camps, and a pair of boots they shall share. the best thing about this film is elia's work with actors direction, pushing them through the adventure and making them seem not only believable but amazingly genuine. a great direction and production work from one of venezuela's most prolific film dupla (novoa-schneider), actually our favorite (our respects to garimpeiro and huelepega)for its perfect inclusion of humor inside a drama environment.
