Storyline

American resort developers bear down on the wild west coast of Nicaragua, hoping to build the next tourist paradise. With lax labour and environmental regulations, some of the developers take full advantage of the situation, and the local fishermen start accusing them of exploitation and land thievery. Unexpectedly, in the midst of this conflict, firebrand Daniel Ortega and the Sandinistas sweep back into government, boldly empowering the local fishermen. The tables turn viciously on the American developers, who get much more than they bargained for. But when the local fishermen, corrupted by new found power, begin acting in the same manner as the American developers, questions are posed about human nature, morality, and ethics on a much larger scale.

Land Development in Nicaragua
23 November 2010 | by (Toronto) – See all my reviews

Although I didn't have high hopes for this film initially I was quite blown away by the time the credits rolled.

Telling the classic story of power and colonialism without taking sides is never an easy task to pull off so swimmingly. Hats off.

Director Julian Pinder shows extreme maturity for his first full length feature. Having been down to Nicaragua myself on/off again over the last 20 years I found that he summed up the period from 2006 to present with astounding accuracy and a knack for humor.

With the 2006 election as the backdrop we learn many interesting facts about the complex revolutionary Daniel Ortega. Throughout the film we come to grips with the complexities of society and human nature. The situation in the film is not documented as simply good or bad. The film allows us stay relatively impartial to both the land developers and the locals in the tug of war of land. After all, Land is all they have.

Colourful characters and an interesting history help make this movie a must see for anyone interested in the country or simply a good story.

I do recommend.

Thank you.
