Disclaimer: whatever the description says- it has zero horror element
10 June 2021 | by Official_MNAASee all my reviews

Extremely lengthy storyline with 80% mugshots. They sometimes took mugshots of horses too! Although the description of this film entry promises something 'supernatural'- it has nothing to do with horror. Felt a bit touch of mystery genre, this one is more like a mixture of Latin crime and survival mix.

I didn't get the poetry of Mayan dude. As a non-Latin person, it took me some time to realize what his poetries were about.

Not a bad movie, but not that enjoyable either. I have to admit, the acting was great. Although it means mostly staring blank to camera -almost the whole time, but the actors did a really great job.
