I like to watch foreign films. Most of the time, I select those that are widely acclaimed, but I picked this one up even though I had checked IMDb prior to renting it and saw that, at the time, only 13 people had rated it, there was no professional nor viewers reviews, and it had close to a 6 rating. I really liked the film. It had a good story arc, good photography and acting, interesting characters and a good ending. I think this was the first Peruvian film I have watched (maybe the second). It gave me an insight on the daily living of a segment of the Peruvian people, those in the city and the ones from the country side and the film showed, to me, that people are about the same everywhere. There are good, honest people and there are those that are not so good people. The country doesn't matter. Human condition and values does.
