The look of the film: It's gritty, and while you can tell it was lower-budget, the film reeks of quality in terms of the shots/overall cinematography. 16mm really did nothing but add to the realism of this one.
The story:It's chock-full of interesting characters. Some good. SOme evil. And some that want to go from one side to the other, but can't.
The sound: Amazing. The music is powerful. Especially in the final scene where the music will stay with you for long after the credits end.
The acting: First rate across the board. These people could have been real for all I know.
This film will divide audiences because of it's subject matter, but it's one of the best, lesser-known, low-budget foreign offerings you're likely to see. The current 6.8 rating is an absolute travesty. I was expecting to see about 7.8, and that's why I decided to write this review.
This is a disturbing film, and one that I can highly recommend.
It IS better than American History X.
You Might Like THis if you Liked: American History X(good, but not as good), THe Boys Next Door(perhaps the last time a low-budget, dramatic film disturbed me this much - not as good as this though), American Me(not quite as good as this), Boyz in the Hood(better), Tzameti 13(not as good).
