Storyline

A tale of a small .22 caliber gun with a heavy history behind it, "La Gunguna" tours the caribbean underground leaving a trace of bad luck and unfortunate events, marked with tones of black humor. A parade of bizarre characters  - lowlifes, loan sharks, gun traffickers, professional pool and domino players, corrupt military men - moved by vengeance and deception, weaved together in episodes of tension, violence, even reflexion, in an ironic and picturesque society where "La Gunguna" becomes a bad omen, showing how curses are sometimes disguised under a shiny coat of gold.

Film Dedication
5 November 2017 | by OscarFelizSee all my reviews

One of the best film works I've been able to see in the Dominican Republic, Colore, Historia, Luces, and keeping you connected to the movie at every moment is what I liked most about this movie. This film took the producers of the same several years of realization, many people do not know but as I have heard from sources over 7 years giving shape to this project which for me has been shocking.
