A soul touching movie
10 January 2007 | by javier-lopez-jSee all my reviews

Is the story of Maroa, a "getto" child (if the word is appropriate on Venezuela)who use to steal radio cars, money on crowded subway, maybe "move" some drug, and found her way out by learning to play music when she was arrested and kept on a reformatory where this music teacher took her by his wing and give her something to hope about. I liked this film because the characters are so well performed, is a film you can see without any expectations, because there are no movie-stars, so anything can happen, but most because it's very touching. Maybe the only downs are that there is lot of slang, so you may have some trouble following literally some parliaments, but it's a movie to follow with the heart, so this is just a minimum minor.
