Audience Reviews for Our Lady of the Assassins

  • Dec 20, 2010
    This was a dark and violent movie. The story of a gay writer Fernando, returning to his country after being away for so long. He met a 16 year old gay boy Alexis, who prostitute for living. The movie seemed to drag so long in some scenes and this made it feel slow and boring. The relationship between Fernando and Alexis seemed a little overreacted. Fernando was an aging writer, Alexis was young,hip and modern, so it felt unbelievable that he would have such an intimate and profound relationship. But what they won't do for money? The ending was a question mark, and I wonder if something was left out. The acting was good, very natural in the dialogue. The cinematography was beautiful with the city of Medellin for the backdrop of the movie. Not my type of movie.
