Some people in Colombia didn't like this movie because it shows the sad reality of the children in the streets, and because there are no professional actors playing the roles of these children but actually homeless kids. Make no mistake, this is a powerful film and no trained actor would touch your heart the way these kids do. The story is, of course, dark, violent and lacking a happy ending, but that's the kind of life the youth endures in the harsh Colombian streets.
