      The distant dust under the wheel of the history of migratory birds with a strong desire to survive

      There are two major conflicts in the plot. The first time was caused by Moyes' unauthorized killing of a drug dealer. This curly-haired brother is just an outsider. The second time was caused by the son of the old lady, Leonidas, who violated the biological daughter of Aniwar, a wealthy merchant of the Vayu family. Rapayet actually represents the potential consciousness of the tribe....

      Dreams and dead souls blown away by summer wind

      On the poster of "Migratory Birds", a man with a gun is wrapped in a red cloth with his head. The blood red was blown by the wind, and the skirt corners were raised like a woman, rippling in the air. The man's face was sunken, like a skeleton hiding behind a red cloth, waiting alone.

      As a new work by Ciro Guerra, director of "Snake's Embrace", "Migratory Birds" is located in the desert of northern Colombia. Unlike the water and jungle in the previous film, this movie seems to set off a...

      Villager drug lord

      3 stars, as a true historical event, is worth seeing. Although it is a drug dealer gang, it is only the scale of small-scale villagers' armed fighting. Moreover, the pattern of the Diaomin was too small, and it turned out that the crotch could not be covered and caused the disaster, and finally was picked up by foreign mercenaries. A tragedy was staged. What is impressive is that people in South America also need matchmakers to get married, and they have to give a lottery gift,...

      Ghosts through history

      The female director of the two directors was too entertaining and consuming South American-especially Colombia-drug trafficking stories, so they decided to tell the same story, but from a different perspective.

      "The Godfather"/"Scarface" + "A Hundred Years of Solitude", well, it just sounds great!

      The super-sensual experience of "Snake's Hug" is almost invisible in this "Migratory Birds", but there are still embers. I really like the pictures of a few dreams, lost, bad omens, all...

      The origin of Colombia's drug smuggling boom

      A good theme, as one of the best foreign language film candidates for this year’s Oscar, the theme for us is "drug boom." In that era, the people in the Guajira area in northern Colombia, including the Vayu and other ethnic groups Both participated in drug smuggling and became the source of Colombia’s civil unrest and international scandals in the following decades. This film also focuses on the drug trade, tracing its modern origins, and also focuses on violence that destroys the lives of...

      10/11/2018. There is exotic beauty and alienation, and lyrical slowness. There are discussions about honor, tradition, and community. There is a shattering of the old and the new. There is a sense of fate, everyone's fate seems unpredictable, and it makes people sigh. I like the shootout in the desert the most. The poetic dark clouds weighed the top, the house suddenly fell into ruins, and the heavy rain came as scheduled. The sound of the rain during the roll credits was so...

      In the previous part, I always doubted whether the display of traditional customs was too deliberate, but the actual whole film is a process of tearing and destroying each other for decades about customs/traditional values/family and modern business/interests/capital society. . These two parts include Incentives (Peace Corp) and can even easily refer to many...

      This video tells us two things: 1. Don’t ask for too much dowry, it will cause trouble 2. In the eyes of mother-in-law, son-in-law is never as good as a...

    Movie plot

    The Colombian young Lapaye fell in love with the bright and charming girl of the same race, Sedah, but the woman's parents used a sky-high dowry to make things difficult for him. It was the golden age of Colombian drug lords, and drugs circulated unscrupulously on the market. In order to marry his beloved girl, Lapaye decided to take the risk and sell marijuana. The marijuana business has been smooth sailing, and they have also made a...
