Review by anonymous (posted on 22-Sep-2006)

Fernando Vallejo, one of the most controvertial writers of our time has the courage to defide social bigotry and taboo by presenting to the world not only a movie that society finds it difficult to deal with but portrays himself as the main character in the movie. His beliefs and his very own sexual inclinations are clearly portrayed in the movie. He has had the courage to come out and and without hesitation claims to be himself a pederast. He has spoken the truth about corrupt polititians and presidents from his own home country, Colombia but he has also spoken the truth about his own life without reservation. The movie takes you in a journey where an old, tired and torn man returns to his home country with the intention to die in his homeland, but before it could happen, he meets a young street boy who works as a hit man (boy) for the Medellin Cartel. They both fell in love and so the story unfolds with the writers poor perception of his own town in decadence. Fernando Vallejo in real life and in the movie claims to be an atheist, belief which he sustains through out the movie. Great movie, a must see.
