Men in prison
16 November 2002 | by bouduSee all my reviews

This mini acts as a wonderful homage to every movie of the subgenre 'Men in prison'. Ulises, a typical successful lawyer is found guilty of murder and sent to prison. There, he has to learn new rules, and confront (and even become friend) with the dangerous and mad 'Willy Marmota', who he had imprisoned, as a lawyer. In the meantime, a young female lawyer try to resolve whether Ulises is innocent. His old friends and associates abandon him . And his family lives menaced. The result is an impressive mini , where every character (even the sadistic prison guards) is fully developed, Jarmusch-style, and the story is as interesting and shocking as 'Midnight Express'. 10/10
