Guy, a Haitian boy escaping from poverty, eyewitness the assassination of his parents while crossing the Dominican border. Years later, he confronts the murderers, entangled in a vortex of revenge, love, racial hate and an uncertain future.
Again the Director Jose Maria Cabral makes another atypical film for the Dominican cinema, this time a thriller of science fiction. It is perhaps the best science fiction film produced so far in the Dominican Republic. It handles a story that drives viewers to think about its entangled plot. Among the highlights is its use of science fiction, which is included little by little in history. This makes the characters go developing and that the surreal elements are not anticlimactic. The plot twist is well done. The ambiguities that are left at the end maybe it is for the spectator to analyze them.
The use of dialogues without idioms makes it even more interesting. Although there are times that the characters seem very robotics. His curious dirrecion creates good moments of tension and sometimes creates incredible scenes. Only in some moments the camera seems unstable, but it is acceptable. its photography is beautiful for the type of film it is.
It is a film that encourages psychological films in a country where much trash cinema is consumed.
