PRESS REVIEWS

-

“Guzzoni crafts a suitably glowering and hostile atmosphere for this story, which delves into the very murkiest corners of Chilean society.” Wendy Ide – Screen Daily

 

“It’s a dark, dark world in Fernando Guzzoni’s well-executed title. And it feels worryingly familiar.” Marta Balaga / CinEuropa

 

“By creating a character with somewhat complicated nuances, Guzzoni avoids the more simplistic and obvious interpretation, the predictable “denouncement film” and turns it into something morally more gray but nonetheless quite powerful.” Diego Lerer / MICROPSIACINE

 

“It is done competently, and its character duo is always ready to climb up or down the moral ladder -making the film in turn a valuable experience to watch.” Vassilis Kroustalis / FILM IS A FINE AFFAIR
