Visceral, gripping, and lovely
12 May 2019 | by pbjoshSee all my reviews

A simply made movie about frustration and inertia in a violent society. For me an all time top movie. Like a less fantastic, more personal City of God. To answer the other commenter who says that the father's death was unexplained, it was explained, if subtly. He was a politically vocal person and part of the point of the movie is that in the darker times 10-15+ years ago in Medellin there was no knowing, there was no justice. No Colombians nor many Latinos, for that matter, would have lost the meaning though people less familiar with Colombian history can't be expected to have the background.
