Let me start out first that I hate subtitled movies BUT this movie caught my attention by its uniqueness and non-main stream plot. Definitely worth a watch if you have not seen it.

Almost a classic
M. Carter | 09/05/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"First off, the camera work and cinematography is second to none. Even the premise itself is top of the line. Unfortunately, the execution of the story is what hurts this movie. We have flashback, after flashback, in one person's flashback, then somebody else's flashback, that the story gets muddled. Rosario is so hurt by her brother's death for almost half the movie, but the problem is, that her brother is not fleshed out enough, the filmmakers should have given the audience some emotion to connect with Rosario's emotion. There's just not enough about their relationship for the audience to care. But some of the images and camera angles just might be worth checking out this film."
A truly latinamerican cinema masterpiece
Agustin Criollo | San Juan, Puerto Rico | 02/26/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"With a keen sense of direction, Emilio Maillé takes us into a realistic and no-nonsense journey into the depths of mid eighties Medellin were one thing and only one thing rules: Cocaine.
Great direction of photography and wonderful performances by Flora Martinez and Unax Ugalde.
A must see film."
An excellent foreign language film
Chris S. Jackson | Las Vegas, NV | 02/13/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a really interesting and beautifully shot film. The acting is suburb and the leading lady (Flora Martinez) as the femme fatale Rosario Tijeras is absolutely stunning. She has a lot of range and depth and hope to see more of her. Although it is very graphic in its sexuality and violence it still is a moving and emotional story. Recommended for film buffs and those enamored of Flora Martinez :)"
