One of the best movies filmed in Chile.
8 February 2009 | by carmon-3See all my reviews

One of the best movies filmed in Chile.

Sample through the eyes of a young child (4 years old?) the city of Santiago, crossing from a peripheral, central, and finally reaching the river Mapocho, home pariahs.

The child comes from a very poor family. The story begins in a wake of a newborn sibling, where it is mixed with the sadness, drink and party.

The child is lost and begins to walk toward the center of Santiago know where the fauna can live as human.

The director never lost the vision of a child and the audience is frustrated by the weakness and strength of innocence.
