...La vida de muchos y incluyendo pensamos que vivimos en ocasiones lo peor que podemos vivir pero realmente esta gente, estas personas son las que realmente son las que puedo llamar seres de paz y seres de lucha... (Excellent Movie)
The absolute fascination that the composite structure of this film presents, crossing sometimes the visual abstraction as a profound political look, is greatly reduced by its soundtrack,either by the comment off, far-fetched, struggling in its poetic, whether with the music, which extends and deepens it, resulting in a contradiction: reality is ornated and people are illustrations of a poetics, figures of a speech.
It was really hard for me to watch some scenes at times. Still unbelievable how this brutality can happen in this century. In the south border of my country... So close, so unbelievable, so sad yet true. Although I see everyday the people who had to leave their country in my hometown, it still seems so hard to believe.
"Cinema of realism ... of the marvelous ... of the murderer ... of the victim ... of the poetic. Fantasy. People and fish we want to topple the butcher. Do you think that words still have meaning? I wanted to be in danger so that I'd become one of my people." Neither sensational nor disrespectful, these images make the savagery of war impossible to repudiate, unlike migrants/refugees thwarted by borders and treaties.
This film will never reach the audience that it needs to reach, and certainly not with the weight that it needs to reach them. Don't get me wrong, it is an immensely powerful film, but at the same time I wonder if it has really made a difference, or changed anyone's (including my own) mind. I hope so.
"Take 1. Take 2. Take 3. Take 4. Take.... my heart."
A gut wrenching and incredibly (necessarily) disturbing film comprising mobile phone combined with voiceover, music and recurring sound effects and motifs, grouped together in semi-related sections via the use of intertitles. It's not a traditional documentary by design. It's not like anything I've seen before.
