Satanás insults my intelligence and my artistic taste, and my desire to be at awe in front of a work of art.
7 June 2007 | by (Colombia) – See all my reviews

As a Colombian proud of my country, I find it depressing and pathetic that most Colombian films have nothing to show but the most horrible human atrocities without any artistic purpose to back them up. Both the author of the book, on which the movie is based, and the director, demonstrate their absolute inability to reach the public without using morbid and sickening situations where human compassion or any redeeming qualities are completely inexistent. On top of the fact that the book is based on a horrifying real story that took place in Bogotá 21 years ago, the author adds upsetting characters and situations (including one of the most horrible rape scenes I have ever seen, children murdered by their own mother, child molestation, kidnapping, robbing, prostitution, street and domestic violence, etc, etc, etc.) that are made up and not connected to the real story, and fulfill no artistic purpose. The director does not use one of the most interesting qualities of cinematography, which is its capacity to "suggest" ideas or emotions, without having to show "literally" every single detail of those horrible situations. There is no artistic complexity in this film and the connections between the characters are absolutely arbitrary. I am no baby for violent or grotesque films in fact I admire and respect many movies that are very violent (say Pulp Fiction for example) because there is more to it than just the crude situations. Satanás insults my intelligence and my artistic taste, and my desire to be at awe in front of a work of art.
