STUNNING Performance, COMPELLING Story..GREAT MOVIE!!
21 April 2013 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Given the lack of the Paraguayan cinematographic production, I went to see this film with great skepticism at the 14th edition of the "Havana Film Festival" in New York City. The presenters had only compliments towards the movie, still my skepticism was there. Immediately after the movie started I could already feel the intensity and the high-speed dynamics of it. Putting it in few words, the acting was stunning to where the characters managed to take you right into the scene!...you just care for most of them in it, even a little for the bad guy and his sick son!! There were many very emotional and motivating moments and even thou things turn out in the most unexpected way, they show you all the interesting sides of humans...The director really achieved AN AMAZING, MOTIVATING, PASSIONATE AND VIBRATING WORK...CONGRATULATIONS!!
