Walking Across The Razor's Edge In Colombia
7 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It has been often said that cinema is a mirror of what transpires in modern day society (and that goes for elements,both bad,as well as good). Jorge Nava's 'La Sangre y la Lluvia',or 'Blood & Rain' tells a dark story of modern day events in the big city (in this case,Bogota,Colombia). The story concerns a taxi driver,named Jorge (played by Quique Mendoza),who's brother was gunned down recently by some of Bogota's slimy crime element (including the police),and is trying to get his head together,and Angela,a hard drinking,coke head party girl (played by Gloria Montoya),who just wants to have fun (obviously in the worst way). These two damaged souls are brought together by chance on a rain soaked night (after Jorge is nearly beaten to death by Lt. Gonzales,another hard drinking,cocaine snorting policeman who is total scum,played by an intense Hernan Mendez,he is found by Angela,is brought to hospital,and seems to take a fancy to Jorge). Things from here take on an even darker turn,as Lt.Gonzales,with the help of some other fellow officers,even worse than he,try to hunt Jorge down to deal with him,face to face (again). Jorge Nava directs & co writes the screenplay,with the assistance of Carlos Henao & Alize LeMaoult,a taut,gritty tale of a dark night of the soul in the big city. Passing resemblances to Martin Scorsese's 'Taxi Driver' & 'Mean Streets' will be duly noted. The film earns it's edgy look by cinematographer Juan Carlos Gil,which opts for a "film noir" look. Not...repeat,NOT a pick to click as a first time date movie. Spoken in Spanish with English subtitles. Not rated by the MPAA (the film has no American distributor,but gets circulated via the film festival circuit),this film has pervasive strong language,full frontal nudity,some strong sexual content,rampant drug & alcohol abuse & violence,some of which is graphic & disturbing. Leave the kiddies home.
