    La estrategia del caracol

    ★★★★★

    Sin duda alguna esta es una obra maestra.

    Si alguna vez escuchaste decir que "la justicia en Colombia se hace en las calles", este maravilloso film colombiano ilustra exactamente esto.

    Lo es politica como lo es artistica, satirica como seria, cinematica como literaria, "La Estrategia del Caracol" pinta un portarretrato del proletariado Colombiano.

    The whole concept of a island used to treat and study clinically insane inmates, whilst being a metaphor for how alone and detached we they are from ordinary society, makes for the perfect setting…
