Well, this is one of the most popular chilean movies along with "el Chacotero sentimental". But being popular does not mean to be good.
The film is an easy watching light study of the lower chilean social types everyday living. A little funny sometimes, but blatantly insane others, the central plot line is to grab or not an opportunity to become a thieve and make some money and when in to it, finding a way to get out.
There's a little political "taste" of the years 1973-1989 that you just can't bypass (like the smiling-guy-from-gestapo attitude of the police), but it won't matter too much if you're not that old.
So, you should watch it, and see how difficult can it be to live when you have no chances.
