Paraguayan submission for Oscar`s Best Foreign Language Movie category offers you a rare occasion to see a heist movie from this small South American country. Well, it isn`t exactly a heist movie, but in an alternative format to the genre. It is a face pace action as well as gradually unfolding crime story, where it gets gore from time to time. The performance of the young stars of the movie, who are also lead actors in the film, are pretty good. I enjoyed it while it lasts, but that`s it. I would recommend to the fans who are especially wants to experience of seeing a movie from this less known country.
As a note, there is a projected English re-make based on this movie.
