Gnecco, Was he on the film??
10 June 2015 | by gosniakSee all my reviews

Impressive movie, specially if you have seen in that past Luis Gnecco,as a comedian...you won't find him on the movie...there is just a traditional but criminal priest.

Outstanding characters, intense movie. Based on a real story. Hard to believe, but true. Maybe it won't be easy for the foreign public, but easy to be understood for people living in Chile and interested to understand some cultural local social codes.

Benjamin Vicuña, performs great too, specially on his deep way to view, to look, without talking he express some pain.

There are some scenes that don't give too much freedom to use your imagination.
