Good effort, worth seeing
15 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this was worth my time, a good effort that drew attention to a subject that has been all but ignored in the press. Obviously a work of fiction, none the less I thought it raised some interesting ideas about what might be behind the very real murders of over 500 women in Juarez.

Considering it's small budget the production values were good and the script decent, direction, photography, design, editing were of high standard for a low budget film. The plot moves along well, and kept me interested, certainly more so than many "big budget" films I've seen lately.

Whilst this film is not perfect, (show me one that is), I don't think it deserved some of the negative postings it received, particularly those that seem to be sour grapes from disgruntled crew members. It's a movie folks, not a documentary, and one that might bring some badly needed attention to the hundreds of murders still ongoing in Juarez.

Good effort, worth seeing.
