In his twilight years, Silvio Vega, a child of the destitution and violence of Colombia’s countryside, takes a trip with his two grandchildren to force them to kill him instead of dying of old age.
An incredible performance from Jairo Salcedo grips this terrific second feature from Colombian director Ruben Mendoza. Rich with political and social subtext, this tale of a commanding patriarch’s desire to end his life balances beauty and violence en route to a startlingly effective climax.
