"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.

Well Done
26 April 2007 | by hpagan14See all my reviews

This movie is well done in all the technical aspects, some very good acting and others that just reach the average, but mainly this is a step forward for the Dominican movie industry. The social crisis that is crafted in the film is a day to day situation that is lived by every Dominican fellow.

This is a strong subject that could have reached bigger proportions but in a way sometimes it fails to get the maximum drama out of the plot situations and falls into funny moments. I would say that the final 3 minutes of the film should had been edited and this would have made this film a lot better.

Kudos for Frank Perozo, Henky Madera, and for all the technical staff.
