My favorite Colombian movie!
4 October 2005 | by dajara62See all my reviews

Despite the recent great productions made by or whit Colombians, I just want to let the readers know, that it might not became your favorite Colombian movie, but you will undoubtedly like it!!

As all the other films from Sergio Cabrera, its a mixture of drama, suspense and action.

It is also an extraordinary post of the unbelievable secret tales that Bogotá can hide. You will love Martina García's character, and you will never lose the interest of resolving the knot by yourself.

Remember always to support Colombian productions! (Not too much budget, but lot of talent and amazing stories).
