Storyline

It's Friday night in Asunción, Paraguay and the temperature is sweltering. Víctor, a 17-year-old wheelbarrow delivery boy, dreams of becoming famous and covets a fancy cellular phone in the infamous Mercado 4. He's offered a chance to deliver seven boxes with unknown contents in exchange for a quick US$100. But what sounds like an easy job soon gets complicated. Something in the boxes is highly coveted and Víctor and his pursuers quickly find themselves caught up in a crime they know nothing about. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

In the wheelbarrow chase scene, Victor's forehead was burned by gun powder residue and the filming was not stopped. His hair was used to cover the injury. The older wheelbarrow man did suffer a foot injury while filming the chase scene and was taken to the hospital so you do not see him running up the ramp. See more »

Well crafted story and innovative direction. Logical and unpredictable.
24 April 2013 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

What I appreciated the most about this movie was the outstandingly well crafted screenplay. As a foundation to the story, the socio-economical setting is very clearly established from the very beginning as well as each character's background and motivations. With such solid dramatic pillars, the story unfolds organically. No character is good, bad or stereotyped, their actions are a consequence of their history, their situation and their motivations. In the best style of Greek tragedy, the story brings us to discover how characters are unexpectedly connected and how seemingly casual acts have strong and logic consequences.

The direction is very innovative and fresh in camera angles and editing that match well the techno-tropical music.

I would put it up in the same category and caliber with City of Good as a sample of the best of Latin-American cinema.
