The dialogue is as spare as the story; the richness comes from the performances of stars Cristian James Abvincula and Jarlin Javier Martinez, whose characters shine through their faces before they speak a word.
A tough little movie set in the waters and coastal jungles of Colombia, "Manos Sucias" dashes naive hope with cold, brutal reality.
Manos sucias culminates with the expected arrival of horrific savagery but not from the direction you were expecting.
Though the plot turns aren't necessarily surprising and characterizations a bit facile, Wladyka manages tense moments, particularly a chase on motorized rail cars.
The light is menacing, the mood watchful and the action scenes have a crude, desperate energy that gets the job done.
As it dashes up the coast and railroads through the jungle, the film is vigorous in its evocation of place and prickling and insistent with its suspense.
Blessed with heaps of talent behind and in front of the camera.
Wladyka and his co-writer/cinematographer Alan Blanco spin the relationship out with a compelling and surprising tension.
Josef Kubota Wladyka is ultimately unable to reconcile complex dynamics any further than with a glimpse toward their fundamentally destructive effects.
...the experience will leave you believing that you've just witnessed something very real and, even with its all-too-short running time, still manages to pack quite a punch.
[Shows us] a face that needs to be onscreen more, both in their countries and in ours.
