This is ones of the most wonderful films i never see in my life is full of magic , a well made scrip that bring you to the darkness of the soul of this society. Isidro Ortiz take the topics of terror films of all times to used a pieces of a personal "fairy-tale" that talks about the human nature. The look of the film is not like a low-budget film and the light is another character of the movie as the art direction show us a world full of textures and organic life. The film talk about unadapted people , those who lives in the limits or outside. Is a travel to the soul of our "civilitation" but all dressed with mystery and a lot of surprises.
