Movie Reviews

Love that kills or redeems us (Amor a muerte)
PP Rodriguez | 11/19/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"A very good movie by director Gustavo Balza. Recommended for people that appreciates movies like Amores Perros or Solas. The film opens and ends with the sharp notes of a bandola, and in between we see the sad story of Aixa, a pregnant teenage girl that lives in the marginal areas of a South American city (Caracas in this case). Around Aixa, there is a family where men are absent and the main financial support comes from the work of her grand mother. A priest and a doctor deal with matters of live and death every day in this urban chaos. The film analyzes in a balanced way the moral dilemma of bringing babies into a world full of violence; a violence that never ends and consumes everything. The shocking end will make you think for a while."
