Diamantes Negros tells the long journey undertaken by two young boys from Mali who arrive in Spain after being persuaded to pursue their dream of escaping from poverty by becoming professional football players.
The most expensive movie ever done in Chile is also - and by far - one of the very worst in the history of Chilean cinema. A box-office flop both in Chile and Spain (the co-producer country), this confusing, silly and awfully boring movie rises a simple question: How could international producers risk money in such a mess? It pretends to be an original science fiction flick but it merely emulates movies that would deserve better respect. A ridiculous story line leading nowhere and becomes more and more puzzling, poor acting and a dreadful direction make this an experience similar to the one you may have with an Ed Wood movie. A waste of money both for the producers and for the very few people who had the bad idea to see it in a movie house or still plans to see it in video. A disgraceful step back in the increasingly interesting development of Chilean cinema.
