Great movie
20 December 2012 | by See all my reviews

I'm not very fan of Venezuelan movies, basically because most of them are about the same people and have the same plot: Crime in Caracas' poor zones(barrios).

This one, is one of the few jewels of Venezuelan cinema that shows another face of the life in this country. Miguel Ferrari takes a risk in writing and directing a movie about gay love (as his first movie) in a country which is divided in its opinions about the whole "gay" subject and which is pretty more traditionalist and conservative than other Latin countries, like Mexico or Argentina, where they actually debate the topic of gay marriage. Venezuela is pretty years away from having a serious discussion of the "gay rights" topic on a governmental level. At street level it's the same: Hate crimes against gay or transsexual people are quite common and other types of discriminations are always present in every level of life. Miguel Ferrari writes and directs a story about just that subject: Gay love, discrimination and hate crimes, even knowing that it would shorten its public, but he does it in such a way that achieves to get the topic in everybody's mouth.

The art direction is great. So is the music score. As soon a the very first scene hits the screen you realize you are about to see quality material where the sound, music and photography is taken care of. The characters are well drawed and believable in every possible way. The tone of the movie is very challenging for viewers used to fast-action films, but the director achieves in creating slow moments that can get to your heart and avoids the "boring effect" that slowly-pased movies tend to cause.

The secondary topics of the movie (Transgender, domestic violence, anorexic people and people not pleased with their bodies) are also well portrayed with humor, drama and a message to the audience. But as one chartacter of the movie points out by saying "I'm going to talk about diversity" This movie is actually about diversity, and the different types of love one feels in one's life: The love to your friends, the love to the family, romantic love, love for your job and the love to yourself.
