South American cinema's current resurgence isn't limited to Argentina and Brazil - young Colombian writer-director Ruiz Navia has made a major splash with this accomplished debut. Set in a remote village wedged precariously between jungle and ocean, it follows an itinerant incomer as he observes and explores his alluring but disturbing environment.

Audience Reviews for Crab Trap (El vuelco del Cangrejo)


Engaging but distant portrait of a provincial Colombian town facing encroaching modernity represented by two disparate foreigners. One, a stranger passing through whose life is touched by the villagers, another a settler whose modern lifestyle begins to change everything. Beautifully hushed and observant, but not quite as deep as it thinks it is.
