What!? 5.4 points!? Did you watch it with your eyes?
18 February 2012 | by chetoscoSee all my reviews

A masterpiece. Otar Iosseliani's style. The whole Guatemala painted impressionistically in just one ordinary night of nothing. But nothing suddenly and relentlessly is wiped out by everything, just the way the life likes to do, putting all the movie's elements in their places. Brutality is combined with subtle irony, I remember at least three bursts of laughter of mine. The photography, editing and non-professional acting are impeccable.

With real budget Cordón will rock the world. They say he already did it with 2011 Marimbas del infierno.

By the way, besides being half-guatemalteco, he works in México. Looks like this country is on the edge of yielding the new wave of young superdirectors.
