The hard life for homeless kids in the streets of Medellín
19 November 2007 | by laperamalaSee all my reviews

The way Gaviria works with his natural actors and actresses, made it possible to recreate, with real life homeless kids, the way of living in the street for those who life didn't give a chance. This film has the power to show the crudeness of the Medellín streets and its habitants without taking position, or judging, but also without having innocents, because, in a way, we are all part of it. Gaviria's most important characteristic is how he manage to enter deeply into the world of the ones who are placed aside, without contaminating their version of life, getting this people to talk and "confess" the things they have had to pass through, with the most sincere and professional investigation.
