light but ok
21 March 2019 | by HombredelfuturoSee all my reviews

...I do not think that the prosecutors or Police department work in this competent way but is the main canvas to paint this story. Is a light take on the what s could going on with the supposed Justice, the politicians and the real power behind. All this net is there in the real world. Sometimes the bad are not so bad and the good ones have more than one face. Sometimes the ambiguity of the decisions taken put in manifest at to what point some body is down in the knees with the system. In the case of this movie, the personal justice is the driving motif instead of the whole idea.

The camera work is just evident and the overall feeling is of a TV movie.
