I finally went through the curiosly divisioned (is that a word?) “Spanish/South American/African” shelves at the video store.
As suspected, it was 87% Spanish, 22% Mexican and 13% “other”. (Lots of copro-ductions.) I only found two films from countries previously not covered (of which this is one), so it’s getting really difficult to just stumble onto films now. I guess everything will have to be shopped via the Intertubes from now one.
Anyway anyway, yet another interesting film from South America: Still the part of the world with the highest good to bad ratio. Good actors, too. The fat kid is really convincing as an asshole.
It’s a really sweet film.
Holiday. Diego Araujo. 2014. Ecuador.
