This is the second Dominican film I've seen. The other one was Sanky
Panky. I think in three years or so Dominican cinema has somewhat
improved: I liked the photography and the music. Nothing to say about
them, they were quite good.
Unfortunately, there was a huge amount of things I did not like: - Acting was very very bad. Trujillo looked more like a clown than a dictator. Soap Opera style acting indeed.
- Screenplay: Full of holes, unarticulated, slow as hell, too much into details of the initial situation, not enough of the really critical ones. The best friend of a good screenplay writer is the delete key. Delancer's computer may not have one.
- Details, details, details: Parties that does not feel like ones, body-building Minerva, lots of clichés that the Dominican directors tends to include in films just as promotion of the country: baile de palos, serenatas...
My general feeling was that the film did not present the real things but kind of a caricature of them.
