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.

Frenetic is an understatement
23 July 2007 | by (Miami) – See all my reviews

The Director longs for Colombian cinema to be taken seriously outside of Colombia. This will not be the film to accomplish that goal. The film is basically another story about the tragedy of the drug trade, this time in a hyper-frenetic magical realism style. One of the reasons this film will have difficulty being accepted outside of the Spanish-speaking world is that it will be virtually impossible to create subtitles. This might not be an issue for a film "purist" but from a practical point of view if you don't speak Spanish the film probably looks like a sick cartoon. Obviously the director has talent and creativity but it needs to channeled a little better.
