Trivia

Shooting of the film lasted 16 weeks, while the average for a Colombian film is 8, with a long gap in the middle. When 70% of the movie was shot, the budget was used up and they had to recess for nine months. When all the cast and crew reunited again, they continued filming normally and the film was finished.

Great movie
6 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With El Colombian Dream, Felipe Aljure has once again been able to break paradigms as he has demonstrated that it is possible to produce and direct Colombian cinema on a par with any internationally produced film. Tarantino's, Jean-Pierre Jeunet's (Amelie) and the influence of other well-known directors are somehow present in this movie. If you want to see a cruel, black-humored critique of a dreadful aspect of Colombian society, watch this movie. Worth mentioning as well are the actors and actresses that make the cast of the film, virtually unknown in Colombia, but with a great potential to become Colombia's next generation of exportable talent. Trivia fact: the twins were chosen for the six-fingered foot of one of them.
