Elements from melodrama, the absurd, tragedy and suspense find themselves in this trilogy to draw a psychological sketch of violence. Through the subtle relationship of three stories and the life situations of their respective protagonists, VISITAS, far from limiting itself to recreate the common places of violence in Latin America, situates us in violence's dark alleyways.

With out a doubt, this is a must see movie. Moreover, it is well directed by professional who undergo months of intense investigation, and research to create a healthy and reasonable film.
