how could a man like him, do something like that?
9 March 2005 | by aledcassalSee all my reviews

Sin Compasion is a very good film about how a good person may turn evil because of society, the way he lives and depression. This film shows a very good face of humanity in which people are no longer part of a society because of their loneliness. Ramon is a good hearted person that studies laws and lives in a strong poverty situation. He thinks a lot about society and the rules that help people get along well with each other. He analyzes society so much, that he losses contact with the reality and makes his own rules applying his own ethics on them. He commits a crime because he thought it was a good way to bring justice to the world. He believes that he has made the right choice but as the film goes on, his way of thinking is affected by other people until he reaches the point in which he no longer recognizes what's wrong or good. He has to make the choice between being a good part of society or live with his own rules and a guilty feeling.

It's a very good film that reflects very well how Latin American societies work, and how much people feel about the way other people suffer while others make evil things. It;s a good picture of Latin America and i recommend the film to every person who doesn't agree with life and feel that nothing can be done.
