A frantic tale of 2 Chillian Friends
18 October 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Filmed not unlike Man on Fire with quick angle changes and and often shaky viewing angle, this film also mimics (perhaps coincidentally) Cidade de Deus.

Never being to the city I can not back up the authentic portrayal of it. However, the constant buzz of city noise, obvious social class differences, as well as a raw look into the drug world and crime can almost define the dark underbelly of every major city.

This film was presumably filmed on a small budget but because of the filming location it's not obvious. The chosen actors were brilliant, both were brutal, delinquents and affectionate making Mala Leche a raw and captivating film into the drug world.
