Thrusting us into the turmoil of the Colombian civil war, Juan Carlos Melo Guevara’s alternately gripping and gentle drama delivers a kaleidoscope of affecting storylines and well-drawn characters, including a compromised father desperate to instill strong values in his son. A tremendous cinematic achievement from a country whose films we rarely see.
