Storyline

For most of his life, Ignacio Carrillo traveled the villages of northern Colombia, playing traditional songs on his accordion, a legendary instrument said to have once belonged to the devil. He eventually married and settled in a small town, leaving the nomadic life behind. But after the traumatic death of his wife, he vows to never play the accursed accordion again, and embarks on one last journey to return the instrument to its rightful owner. On the way, Ignacio is followed by Fermín, a spirited teenager determined to become his apprentice. Tired of loneliness, Ignacio accepts the young man as his pupil and together they traverse the vast Colombian terrain, discovering the musical diversity of Caribbean culture. Hardened by a life of solitude, Ignacio tries to discourage Fermín from following in his footsteps, but destiny has different plans for them. Written by Los Angeles Latino Film Festival

Disappointing plot
4 April 2011 | by (Sihanoukville, Cambodia) – See all my reviews

At the end you finish as Fermin: going back empty. Good things: amazing views of a country that has much to offer to the movie world. Some excellent actors mixed with some artificial ones. The best scene: the machete fighting, good for the cameras, but isolated and unclear once more inside the plot. Terrible: Fermin (the real main character) following a 'master' who teaches nothing to him (movie mistake.) You would expect that, as a Chinese master of martial arts, Carrillo would teach him, but it never happens and Fermin ended humiliated at the end as the spectator. No smiling at all, but no meaning on it also. Very rude in any sense (the psychology of the characters.) Dialogs that seem inspired in works of Gabriel García Márquez but applied in a very poor way. Failed tries of sub-realism like the part of the sorcerers. Best actor: Yull Núñez.
