El Chico Que Miente 2010
1h 40min | Drama | 6 January 2011 (Mexico)
From a town torn apart by a mudslide, where only huge skeletal buildings survive, a thirteen-years-old KID begins a voyage along the Venezuelan coastline driven solely by lies, in an attempt to put his life back together. Throughout the way, he strives to discover his origins.
This film was a nice surprise. I watched it without really knowing what it was about, and it is, I think, best to watch any film like that. It is a journey of self-discovery, loneliness, survival, relationships, coping with life… The boy is on one hand quite mature, but on the other, he is just a kid trying to find something important to him. Really glad I watched this film and hopefully anyone who watches it will see what I saw and love it as well. Also, the music is fantastic! It splendidly follows the story and makes you feel all kinds of emotions. I cried quite a bit, have to confess. I simply cannot believe that no one wrote a review for this yet! I really, really loved it.
