$3 film - Pescador(CC)

An amusing Equadorian road movie turns an accidental drug heist into an offbeat comedy.

A Spanish language film with English subtitles.
It is part of the 9th Latin American Film Festival.

“Do you want to die smelling like fish - like these people?”
The story is based on a real event and a book by Juan Fernando Andrade and tries to show what happens when ordinary people – and not the professionals – do get involved in the sale of illicit white powder.

The director wanted the film to be more about ordinary people having to make big choices rather than the narco trade in its wider context, and this he has achieved in a film with few plot clichés and some likeable, if flawed, characters who leave you guessing what they are going to do next until the end. Those who want an all-guns-blazing-crime-epic will not find it here, but it certainly won’t disappoint anyone interested in seeing how ambition and opportunity affect a young sunburnt Ecuadorian fisherman.

    Really enjoyed the last 2 films but can't make this one as I am hosting a dinner party. Nothing like a curry night in Winter. Hope to see you all at the next one. :)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.

Henry, started Reno Motorcycle Riders
