Luis Fernando Peña,
Ramon, a young Mexican boy, tries to cross the border for the fifth time but fails. His friend tells him about his aunt living in Germany and that she has a better life over there. Ramon then goes to Germany to find his friend's aunt.
Although the movie is based in true facts, that are the reality of the kidnappings in Mexico, at the same time being something sadly common for the Mexico City Citizens, and where the kidnappers won't hesitate to get whatever they want, and the movie started quite decent, it went from good to so-so, falling and falling and in the middle there was an introspection pause of the main character where actually nothing happens but his memories that immediately sent me to the images of 127 Hours (Danny Boyle, the star is James Franco), where actually some dialogs or thoughts are quite alike for me on one and the other. You begin to wonder if the character is gonna scape, kill the captors, kill himself, and actually want something to happen, but nothing does until the end. To make the story short, the movie would be quite good if it didn't have the 50 minute (or whatever) middle section when you get bored to dead. Besides that the acting was cool, the location was believable, and for what we read on the news everyday, the relation with the captors was also well handled.
