Urban and rural living collide in this tragic drama.
4 May 2000 | by kilomasterSee all my reviews

This film is mostly about the rural living of a family who moves out of the city. The young boy, Romulo, does not know what the "big city" looks like and he uses his imagination to make his own out in the jungle. His family must deal with their decision, which sometimes brings terrible consequences. The editing and juxtaposition of images make this a true statement between what is right and wrong with the governments of Latin-America. The non-linear way of storytelling is used at it's best, which makes this film all the more interesting.
