Extremely realistic & violent , Brilliant !!!
29 November 2006 | by (Chile) – See all my reviews

It's one of the best Chilean short film. Extremely realistic, violent and with a disquieting atmosphere. The work of the actors is brilliant, are actors, but really they seem criminals, is casting exceptional. The handling of the camera and dark atmosphere them are very realistic, seems a documentary filmed in 16mm, but the suspense very obtained, shows to us that it is a fiction. It is a short film of low budget, but from his beginning you discover that it is not a simple history, has one of the beginnings extremely more violent than I have seen in the cinema. Shows all the injustice and violence of low worlds of the third world. Imperdible!
