What are people saying?

  • CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Snakeskin

    Al margen de esos juegos sobre viajeros del tiempo, "Snakeskin" es una película testimonial. Por un lado, personajes evocando a la historia de sus naciones colonizadas, otros recordando a parientes o conocidos, y, por último, esos conocimientos propios del imaginario, sobre reencarnaciones y asuntos magico religiosos. El director intenta congregar toda una sabiduría antropológica, en vía a la reflexión.
