Crazy Credits

The film closes with the following statement: This film is dedicated to memory of John Galvis, Jackson Gallego, Leonardo Sánchez and Francisco Marin, actors in this film, who died before the age of 20 in the absurd violence of Medellín. So that at least their images last the normal lifespan of a human being. See more »

Punk Rock South America
9 February 2017 | by gavin6942See all my reviews

Rodrigo and his friends are bored teenagers living in Medellin. Rodrigo wants to start a punk band. The youths mainly loaf around the hillside shanty towns and, for kicks, steal a bike or car, or shoot someone.

This film really grabbed me. Not necessarily for any specific reason, but more for the overall concept. One, you have the setting in Medellin. For me, that is synonymous with the drug cartel. And at the time this film was released (1990), I am sure that is exactly what it was going for.

Also, the punk rock scene. This is probably naive on my part, but I don't generally think of punk music as being so international. I know there are punk bands everywhere, but it seems odd to have one as the focus of a South American movie. Maybe that's normal. But this surprise is what really made this a great film for me.
