Storyline

This is the incredible story of Pablo Escobar, the infamous boss of Colombia's Medellin drug cartel, told for the very first time by his son, Sebastian and his widow Maria Isabel Santos. In Nicolas Entel's film Sebastian tells of his extraordinary childhood, growing up with a father he loved but whom he knew to be Colombia's enemy number one. He tells of times of extraordinary luxury and extravagance, and other times on the run. And Sebastian and his widow open the family vaults to share their private and long hidden archives. But this is also the story of two of Escobar's most prominent victims, the Minister of Justice and a politician about to be elected President of Colombia, as told by their sons. They were among hundreds that Escobar had killed in the 1980's. The film follows Sebastian as he tries to break the cycle of revenge and assassination by seeking reconciliation with the sons of his father's victims. Written by Anonymous

brilliant and hard-hitting
12 August 2010 | by (www.subtitledonline.com) – See all my reviews

"Juan Pablo Escobar has agreed to tell the story of his life with his father, Pablo Escobar, once described as the 'World's Greatest Outlaw'. It is also the story of the sons of Pablo Escobar's most prominent victims. It is the story of a country torn apart by violence and revenge, of death and reconciliation, and of a son's attempt to atone for the sins of the father." Ultimately it is up to the viewer to decide whether or not the actions of Sebastian Marroquin could ever have the impact that he so clearly desires. But as a snapshot of the human side of drug trafficking and the misery heaped upon the families of the victims, from all sides of the equation, My Father, Pablo Escobar is a brilliant and hard-hitting documentary.
