Well crafted story and innovative direction. Logical and unpredictable.
24 April 2013 | by juanvenegasSee all my reviews

What I appreciated the most about this movie was the outstandingly well crafted screenplay. As a foundation to the story, the socio-economical setting is very clearly established from the very beginning as well as each character's background and motivations. With such solid dramatic pillars, the story unfolds organically. No character is good, bad or stereotyped, their actions are a consequence of their history, their situation and their motivations. In the best style of Greek tragedy, the story brings us to discover how characters are unexpectedly connected and how seemingly casual acts have strong and logic consequences.

The direction is very innovative and fresh in camera angles and editing that match well the techno-tropical music.

I would put it up in the same category and caliber with City of Good as a sample of the best of Latin-American cinema.
