Overly complicated narrative undermines story of guerrilla fighters.
17 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film has some creative energy, but the story of the young revolutionaries is told in an unnecessarily complicated way and I could never figure out what the director's point of view is. Is she satirizing the commitment of the young people who go to the mountains to bring down the government? If so, why does she quote the authentic rural people who remember the revolutionaries with affection?

I appreciate the effort to put the struggle for justice in context of a specific family, but it was very difficult to figure out who was who. The kids and their animated fantasies were so distracting, and I don't know what was the point of the film within a film shot by a "gringo".

Need I mention that most of the acting was terrible? I lived in Venezuela for two years and I recognize the tele-novela style. The grandmother especially bothered me, but the hero, Teo, was also very bad.
