Emotional for people that face death or family problems
3 October 2005 | by (Puerto Rico) – See all my reviews

CAYO is an emotional movie were the main character faces imminent death. Its photography is excellent. You wish you were in Culebra, Puerto Rico with the beautiful beaches. The edition is very good and the use of the three different times in the story is superb. Ever wonder were are your friends from childhood? These characters do recall excellent moments of their childhood, their youth and all the surroundings they live upon.

I was able to watch the premiere and all the moviegoers had the same positive impression about the movie. It is a do not miss. Make sure you watch it with family and friends. For sure they will enjoy it altogether.

This movie shows that Puerto Rican Cinema has grown and that it competes with any movie done anywhere else.
