Huge critical acclaim for this thriller about a group of South American teenage guerrilla soldiers who have guns, rituals, and a hostage. Their dangerous shifting dynamics propel an overwhelmingly tense and gripping film.

Easily one of the best films of 2019…Alejandro Landes’s thrilling tale of child guerilla soldiers is a must-see. – Irish Times ★★★★★

This overpoweringly tense and deeply mad thriller from Colombian film-maker Alejandro Landes is the best thing I have seen at Berlin this year: something between Apocalypse Now, Lord of the Flies and Embrace of the Serpent. – Peter Bradshaw for The Guardian ★★★★★

Inspired by the upheaval in his native Colombia, Alejandro Landes’s story of teenage guerrillas descending into anarchy is a hypnotic triumph. – Mark Kermode for The Guardian ★★★★★
