The Best Dominican Film!
20 September 2008 | by See all my reviews

I saw this movie last night and I was surprised at the quality of the argument as well as the performance of the actors. Definitely Angel Muniz with this film demonstrates a breakthrough films and shows that it has been polished enough! Unfortunately what is shown in the movie is the stark reality, a reality that gets worse every day. I hope that this movie can do conscience in our country.

Maybe it has only one thing that can be criticize and it is that this movie is what it is localist story in the dialog, but I think anyone can understand.

Congratulation Angel Munis for this great movie, I hope your next movie be as good as have been this one! But one thing, try to make movie with good actors and actress like this one, because to me, is the most important part and also the plot!
