worth your time
23 March 2011 | by SnowballSee all my reviews

There are positives in this unremembered film. First, you will see 100% authentic footage of the Colombian countryside, farmers, suburban train rails, and most of all, Bogota as it existed in the mid-70's. If it's overdubbed in English, I couldn't tell. The music is mostly orchestral and some rock/funk ala 70's crime dramas. Solid acting. Moral, authentic growing-of-age story about a country peasant boy drawn into the world of petty crime in Bogota which the movie portrays as the normal state of affairs for orphaned boys. Perhaps the only caveat is that the overall visual quality doesn't stand the test of time very well. "Paco" is included in the Mill Creek 50 Suspense Classics box set.
