La Vida No Vale Nada----very dark comedy of the drug wars in Mexico
This synopsis of the drug wars in Mexico is a dark comedy which makes it watchable but also sad.
La vida no vale nada (life has no value). Is the theme of the characters and by implication most of Northern Mexico. And the here and now because of this drug money fueled nightmare is el infierno (hell) (original title).
Obviously the story is written for comical effect and the gangs made funny (they would assuredly not be in real life).
It is a digestible way to sum up a lot of truths. Social commentary comedy?
Very well filmed gives balance to the Telenovela versions of this conflict like El Hombre De Los Cielos etc...
I recommend this movie highly for any audience. You will look at Mexico differently.
