A fine cinematographic piece about the social reality in Buenaventura, Valle del Cauca
8 July 2018 | by andresfc92See all my reviews

As a Colombian, I saw this movie with skepticism and enthusiasm. Because many other movies about the drug trade and the violence of my country never really tried to show, why this really happened? I mean, what are the motivations of an individual to deal with drugs? In the other hand "Dirty Hands" achieve to present what is going on, in the mind of a person that does such things without demonizing them. In the title of this review I put in the word "fine", the reason is that this film is not as violent as it could actually be ... as the ghettos of that city actually are. As said, it does not focus on the demons, it just explain, why a young man without an education start smuggling drugs, and director Kubota Wladyka do that from a very fine perspective.

Besides the sociological reasons to watch this movie, there are also musical reasons, and photographical ones. The music is the salsa and pacific rap written compose in Valle del Cauca, songs like "Buenaventura y Caney", are its soundtrack.

And you, the viewer will be able to watch the circumstances of a really poor city, which peoples potential and natural wealth has been wasted by corrupted politicians.
