30 July 2000 | Ostomedo
Powerful images from underground Chile
This is a movie that depicts with no moralizing realism the life of a group of youngs dealing with drugs and unemployment. Shows too the skepticism of young people about the new Chilean democracy. The image of the boys taking a sunbath in the middle of nowhere(when Niki asks "what time is it?" and other replies "do you have something to do?"), maybe is the picture of the 90s Chilean cinema. Some of the scenes you can't forget, and sometimes bother reminding us that Chile has a lot of people in problems about drugs and unemployment. Niki's and Myriam Palacios performance, and Gaston Roca's cinematography are the best of this movie. The line "La droga es lo peor" (Drug is the worst) was a popular quote in early 90s, because this movie had a good audience in theaters, video and TV.
