A taste of the political scenario in Latinamerica
10 April 2007 | by carla_galvezSee all my reviews

This movie is an example of the way of living in Latinamerica. It allows us to taste what its like to be a "visitor" and to be a "local/resident", and how that changes the way to see, to understand things and specially, to understand the latinamerican society.

Makes you laugh if you are a person that comes from this particular reality called: Ecuador. The romantic part of the film allows us to see the different "social classes" where everyone need a last name, a friend or just money to be someone, remembering the public that the are places of the planet that treat differently some people, although we may know all about "equealty", the Bill of Rights, the Letter of the United Nations and of our own Political Constitution.

The Director of the film tried to show something: a country where anything its possible, a "wonderland" where there is no order, or respect to any rule, or logic, so options are unlimited situations -most of them funny ones-, and also the political reality of, not only Ecuador, but of Latinamerica today.

A great independent work, a piece that show how Ecuador is seen in other places of the world.
