Without fantasy and exaggeration
3 October 1999 | by POLENSee all my reviews

It´s the best movie directed by Francisco Lombardi . The relation of an adolescent called "The Poet" with a group of bad and fool teenagers that generally studying in a military school converts him like a hero when finally fights against the "gang " leader called Jaguar , discovering that he murdered his best friend called "The Slave" a passive and timid boy . This movie shows the most close realism of a peruvian and latin-american problem.
