From the team that made Embrace of the Serpent, this Colombian crime drama completely reinvents the gangster film. Going back to the roots of the cocaine trade in 1968, when indigenous farmers started cultivating marijuana for eager backpackers, the movie spans 12 years, tracing the incredible influx of money – and violence – as demand for harder drugs takes off. Visually spectacular, the film has a folkloric quality that sets it far apart from traditional genre fare. But make no mistake, this is a film about capitalism, and the way that “success” wreaks havoc with traditional beliefs and customs, tearing families apart and leaving a trail of corpses in its wake. – VIFF

Reviews

Even as you may be reminded of Giant, The Godfather even Breaking Bad — your perception of the world is likely to be permanently altered... it’s also like nothing I’ve ever seen before.
