Good film of social reality drama on Dominican Republic
With this film the Dominican film approaching maturity in terms of the exploitation of social drama and mixing with real people. The performances are very acceptable and well-structured script. Only noticed some editing and direction errors, as well as poor management of sound.
Cheddy Garcia offers a very convincing performance, combined with other excellent performances of boys who seem to be characters from the neighborhoods where you live this reality every day.
The two societies living in the Dominican Republic, the opulence of political power and drama of the boys from the slums, are well shown through this story.
