Good Film
22 January 2006 | by apple_corpsSee all my reviews

I enjoyed the movie very much. There were some technical things that I found distracting. I wonder why the director chose to record the courtroom scenes in video and converting it to black and white with digital effects to make it look like old footage. Since it was shot on 16mm why not just get some black and white film stock? Also, there were a couple of sound sync issues.

I wonder if the entire film could have been given more drama by it being shot entirely in black and white.

Over all the story moved well. The lead actors did a great job. It appears to be a first effort, according to IMDb, for director Sergio Navarretta.

I like stories that wrap things up at the end. This didn't leave me wanting. It had a great epilogue.
