Amazing Movie!!! Please read my posting
9 October 2006 | by markmo-1See all my reviews

First at all I want all people who read my posting to know that I am Colombian, my second language is English and I would love to write my thoughts in Spanish but since the forum's rules are English here I go:

I want to say that the movie is wonderful, Sergio Cabrera amazed me because he proved himself that he knows how to create a masterpiece and not only tragicomedies related to football and guerrillas, I could notice that there are many Colombian stories that can be told without have to appeal to our main flagellums( guerrillas and drug traffic). An amazing story was told, the director emphasized in the character of each one of the actors, with the movie's budget I think it had very good special effects, fabulous edition, excellent soundtrack and incidental music. To me it has been one of the best Colombian movies ever made and I hope they keep producing projects with the same quality.
