Trivia

In an interview of the magazine SEMANA, with the director, the magazine asked: Why the movie? Laura Mora Ortega answered: "I used to write a lot, and people encouraged me to protest [with the writings] about my case, but since my father's death I felt that my only way of express myself [writing] was gone with him. I went to live to Australia, partly, because I couldn't live in Medellín anymore. Two years later, when I was working as a waitress to pay the university, in which I was doing Film studies, I had a dream. I was in a lookout looking at that fierce city of Medellín, and, suddenly, a guy, about my age, sat down next to me, we started talking and, all of a sudden, he says: "my name is Jesus, and I killed your father."

Good thriller, inspired in the lives of director and actors
18 May 2020 | by guisreisSee all my reviews

Very well done Colombian thriller. Extremely well directed, acted and filmed, it uses amateur actors. The film is violent and is inspired in the defense of no violence, what is particularly amazing as the the director herself had her father murdered when she was 22. The two main characters are portrayed by a girl and a young man who have quite similar backgrounds of their roles, what is also very interesting. It is a thriller that makes espectator very anxious, as trying to kill Jesus is obviously not a good idea...
