Perhaps, one of the beast Venezuelan movies of the decade. Elaiza Gil surprise us with a delightful acting and Miguel Ferrari worth two thumbs up. Caracas downtown is represented melancholic and daily against dangerous, a little big cheerless but not evil. Plus, the story is credible and very well adapted to Venezuelan idiosyncrasy. There are some epic and unforgettable images that anchor in our heads, like Magaly opening the flag totally naked and Tony crying in this loneliness while he's not allowed to sing what he wants, what he dreams.

Venezuela must not be always about crimes and drugs, there is a lot people dreaming, suffering, living to improve. Sometimes you're wrong or right or you're just stuck, but that's life. This film proves that.
