Love in the ruins
2 March 2018 | by dokraussSee all my reviews

Wow. Just wow. What a great movie about prisoners in the Dominican Republic and how they use a self-developed sign language to communicate across fence lines. The stunning Judith Perez plays Yannely, who you really don't want for a girlfriend. Trust me on this. I can't decide if her performance or that of Jean Jean as Julian Sosa is the better because they are both brilliant.
