A fine example in the evolution of Venezuelan cinema
9 May 2014 | by (Venezuela) – See all my reviews

I didn't really plan to see the film. A group of friends asked me to go and I agreed, so my expectations were really low. The movie ended up surprising me.

Azul y no tan Rosa might be one of the best Venezuelan films ever made. The story may be a bit too melodramatic, but it says a lot about tolerance and family relationships. The acting, even though not great, is decent. There are laughs, tender moments, sad moments and the movie is really nice to look at because of the locations.

I recommend this movie to anyone who thinks Venezuelan cinema is trash (which is not). It won the Goya Award for best Ibero-American Film, which represented a big win for Venezuela too.
