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>

One of the greatest movies ever made in Latin America
3 April 2005 | by (Cumaná, Venezuela) – See all my reviews

Punto y Raya (Step Forward) went definitively beyond my expectations. It's a very original story, which counts with outstanding performances and has an implicit message about how important friendship and loyalty are during difficult times. Taking place during a (not that far from reality) situation of real tension in the Venezuelan-Colombian border, Punto y Raya makes viewers go into the story, which develops as a drama, with many touches of that typical Latin American kind of humor. The several awards that it's won in different international festivals are very well deserved, and this is a movie which is really worth watching, because it's one of the good productions with the "made in Latin America" stamp.
