Latin America way of life
8 September 2016 | by juampa320See all my reviews

is a must see if you want to see the real perspective of the Ecuadorian way of life. In particular in Latin America how corruption and to learn the power of money in a small country where you can possible buy anyone with a thousand of dollar. This movie also show how poverty became in need to invade some properties of rich people handle that kind of troubles.

the movie also have a lot of action that you will like if you like Spanish movies

Another pretty nice movie of Cordero.

there are certain words that is almost impossible to translate to another language so if you speak or understand Spanish you will enjoy more this nice movie.
