Simply beautiful
1 April 2013 | by nebadomSee all my reviews

The director managed to use the camera to capture a true picture of the current venezuelan society discrimination to minorities, not exclusively sexual.

Being a movie that depicts the medium class in the venezuelan country, also imprints the idiosyncratic attitude: excess, lack of responsibility, the need for a better future and the absence of opportunities in the country, the violence and the impotence against the injustice, the love and the prejudice, the blood ties that grows stronger no matter the distances.

It's a film that has both a marvelous artistic touch and a protest underlying in the plot, that thickens as unravel while the movie goes on. By the end of the film, you'll find yourself attached to the characters stories: feeling them as your friends, suffering their tragedy and rejoicing in their destiny.

Elegant, made with care to the detail and inspiring.
