  • Wortzik's rating of the film Matraga

    It takes some really good time to develop (first act is lousy) but when it reaches the final climatic battle, it was worth all the wait. The middle segment is also powerful, when we reach the new phase of the main character and how nuanced his life is when he's tempted to returning his bad ways. Leonardo Villar plays an opposite from what he did in Keeper of Promises yet he delivers a phenomenal performance.
