User Reviews

 
A powerful short film with more in it
7 November 2019 | by gbeck86See all my reviews

"Sin Cielo" delves into the issues of kidnapping and trafficking of young girls. For the first half this is very much a story about two teenagers in Mexico and their blossoming romantic interests. The second half of the film has moments as devastating as "Mystic River", "Traffic" and "Gone Baby Gone".

The performances reek of authenticity with actors Sophia Santi, David Gurrola and Gia Grimm as standouts. Santi's performance as Josefa is a particular standout, with moments of devastation that echo Anna Magnani in "Open City" and Sean Penn in "Mystic River".

Writer/Director Jianna Maarten needs to expand this short into a feature.
