Brooding and thought-provoking flick concerning interesting themes, such as : recruiting of soldier children, human exploitation by extreme labouring about mineral Coltan, horrible African conditions where life has not value and death shows up in every corner of the way , violent African wars commanded by brutal warlords who cause massacre, destruction and chaos. Cast is pretty well. Belén Rueda gives a fine acting as the valiant Spanish lawyer decided to undertake a perilous mission but her own spirit and mind will take on an ominous reality. Marian Alvarez is the good sister who sacrifices herself for the unfortunate African people. Along with a nice support cast such as : Enrico Lo Verso, Marta Belaustegui, Apali, Ramón Barea, Cardona, Nick Devlin and Iván Mendes as the young boy and ex- soldier child who helps and saves lives.
It contains a colorful and brilliant cinematography by David Omedes who photograps perfectly the lush African jungle. Being filmed on location in Uganda and Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain. As well as an emotive and sensitive musical score by Julio de la Rosa who captures the adequate ambient. The motion picture well written by Jorge Guerricaechevarria, Alex de la Iglesia's ordinary writer, was competently directed by Norberto López Amado. He is a good professional, a fine craftsman who has directed a few films as Nos Miran and La Decision de Julia and a lot of TV series such as : El comisario, El internado, Herederos, Plan America, Acusados, 14 Abril la Republica, Tierra de lobos, El Principe, Toledo, Capitan Alatriste, El tiempo entre costuras, El Rey, Mar de plástico, El incidente, La verdad, Secretos de estado, Brigada Costa del Sol, Hernán. Rating 6.5/10. Above average. The yarn will appeal to Belén Rueda fans.
