Great independent film. Kept me intrigued from beginning to end.
6 November 2012 | by Ricardo HormazaSee all my reviews

This movie is not another nonsensical "colombian drug film", it represents something much more real.

The limited resources usually demand more focus on creating a good story rather than producing eye-candy effects, and this movie I feel is a success at that.

It surely made me experience many feelings throughout the film while the characters show different aspects of themselves. The main character, for example, first an innocent by-standard, then a criminal -- a romantic -- a thinker; this makes me get to know the character as the story develops just like the process of getting to know someone in real life.

I'm expecting to see more films from this guy. Hopefully get to see what he is capable of with a bigger budget.
