Look out for the box
27 March 2013 | by abcvisionSee all my reviews

In 7 Boxes you are taken to the slums of Ausución, Paraguay where everyone is trying to survive. Suddenly Victor is given a break, he is a 17 year old wheelbarrow delivery boy who is given the task to deliver and take care of 7 boxes. What happens next a series of unexpected twists and turns. This movie takes you to the underground world, where the chaos bellow the calm surface is uncovered. It is in Spanish mixed in with several dialects and all with subtitles. The movies themes are loyalty, adventure and what exactly will you do when you life is on the line. I thought it was really crazy how this underworld carried out their own form of justice and the strongest always seems to survive. Saw this film as part of the Atlanta Film Festival.
