Excellent movie from Bolivian cinema, but...
5 December 2007 | by (Washington DC) – See all my reviews

Excellent movie from Bolivian cinema, but I'll admit that the acting and dialogue at the beginning of the film was just a bit amateur. But as the movie went on you could see that the actors became more comfortable in their respective roles and everything seemed much more professional. Anybody unfamiliar with the beautiful Bolivian actress, Carla Ortiz, should definitely check her out in this film! The role of Clota (Schlomit Baytelman) was also well received. Congrats to Bolivian director, Antonio Eguino for a wonderful film based on an amazing true story! And special thanks to the Inter-American Development Bank for premiering this film with English subtitles for the first time in the United States. OVERALL A GREAT SUCCESS FOR THE FUTURE OF BOLIVIAN CINEMA!
