What a movie! Very well documented powerful family story
21 January 2019 | by magonzalez_coSee all my reviews

Enjoy every minute of this movie. The words chosen to tell the story to the director's own voice were particularly a delicacy. I was impressed with the research work to build the story, the collection of materials, and how voices are evoked memories that touch the soul. I read of several people in social networks that this movie has the power to connect us to Colombians/Latin Americans. I do not know if all, but me, the film connected me with the movie, with the story. I felt in the film love, forgiveness, nostalgia, resentment, gratitude, vindication, identification, illusion, and also hatred. Congratulations to Daniela Abad Lombana.
