It's not the same drug dealing story
Some times I heard negative comments about this movie. People who dislike it, argue that we have already seen lots of histories like this one before. And it might be true, but it is exactly what gives me a point of reference to judge this production objectively.
Many things have been said about drug trafficking, but I have never seen a closest approach to the essence and the beginning of the problem. An extraordinary representation of Medellín in the 80's, whit every little detail. Once more, Gaviria leads whit natural actors, obtaining great results on the interpretation of this complicated roles that in my opinion can not really be played by professional or foreign actors, as we could see what recently happened whit Unax Ugalde in Rosario Tijeras.
If you think you know every thing about drug dealing, or if you are Colombian and think that it is a distant problem, or you think it is not your problem, why don't you take a look at this really interesting movie, and by the way give a little support to Víctor Gaviria, that after almost three years whit many budget problems, could finish in great way whit this film.
