"Yuniol" Perez (Shalim Ortiz) and Alberto "Junior" Rios (Frank Perozo) come from opposite sides of the tracks in the Dominican Republic. Aloof and detached, Alberto comes from a wealthy family. Driven and focused, Juan is reared by a devoted mother whose affection makes up for the absence of his father. Juan and his mother survive in a tough and impoverished Barrio on the outskirts of the capital city.
I just saw Yuniol in Dominican Republic, and i have to say i'm more than satisfied with the movie, i'm Dominican and i don't usually like to see Dominican movies because they try to sell us the same stuff we see on Dominican TV everyday, same stories, same characters, i mean, lack of creativity, but with Yuniol, everything's changing, i was impressed with the acting, Shalim is great in the movie, i loved Frank Perozo's performance, Charytin, Milly, Cuquín, Hemky, René Castillo, the were just great, this is an example that we're getting into the movie business.
The story is simply the reality we live in our country everyday and not everybody knows(or simply don't want to know), it shows you how life is in the districts, and how very poor people has to struggle to try to be someone in life, to be able to do something for their people, for their country. The only thing i really didn't like about the movie was the last couple of minutes, the way they ended it, besides that i loved it!! Congratulations to the crew, and Thumbs Up to Alfonso Rodríguez, he did a great job!!!
