i want to tell you something i Live in Medellin, in Buenos Aires neighbor, in fact, i can see La Sierra from my house. i have many things to say: everything you saw in the documental was true, everything is like you saw, but don't think all the people are that way, in fact, even the man in the war didn't want to be there, they're just protecting them and their people of the guerrilla. i think is pretty sad the situation, but it's true, all this happens in every city of the world, mostly in the third world countries, it's a way to try to survive when the government forgets about you. Medellin and Colombia are really nice places to live, people is really charming and nice, i can asure you that i liked the documental because it showed a reality that, although it is not like that anymore, was a real problem and a fear cause for years
one more thing, i really sorry about "Pirulo", you know, the kid with the bullets and the bear, i heard he was killed some months ago... that's really sad, probably he was another victim of this no-sense war, just like the old lady in the movie
however, i invited all of you to come to Colombia, and Medellin, and see with your own eyes how is the situation, all the war you saw in the movie is over, and you'll see Colombian people is really kind and amiable
