Deserved the Silver Bear for outstanding Artistic Contribution at the Berlin film festival

Part documentary, part acted. Wonderful idea. Discusses the corruption in the Mexican police force. Is the public responsible for the state of affairs? Are the elected politicians who encourage the corruption responsible? Will honest cops survive? Very good music and cinematography to boot. This film deserved the Silver Bear for outstanding Artistic Contribution for Editing at the Berlin Film Festival 2021. A trivia the film reveals: It is the always the original natives (a.k.a. The indigenous population) who opt for this no-win career forcing you to accept the status quo of the Mexican police force. If you don't accept the system you are cornered until you resign in disgust.

Finding love where there is none, have compassion for those who do not...

Ruiz Palacios plays with reality and shares this funny, romantic and sad story with us. There are many stories that have to be told, even more those that we don't want to hear. The film shows us the "other side" the one of the apparent enemy, who at the end of everything tells us (through comedy) that police and citizens are the same human beings with fears, feelings and a life full of questions.

Teresa and Montoya, what can I say, thank you for taking me on this trip.

Don Alonso Ruizpalacios, thank you for doing what you do and sharing it with us.

And thank you AMBULANTE for bringing good and free cinema around México!!!

Very well done but with a negative message

This film has a different format, it is a documentary but acted based on real situations.

This format is good and new, like the story it tells, but there is a message that it exposes and that is not very good, this message tells us about why some police officers are corrupt, which they explain and in a certain way you come to understand it, but they also mention the corrupt part of the citizen and in a country where corruption is very common, I do not feel that the corruption of citizens can be justified in order not to pay for their violation or not be responsible for the crime they committed, all that chain corruption can be committed by a simple traffic ticket to overlook a homicide, that has led Mexico to be a very unsafe country with a very bad reputation. I do not think the film does well to expose the justification of corruption by part of the police, their reasons are understood but the citizens do not think they have a valid justification for being corrupt. Although you have to accept that the film and its novel format stand out and make it a product of visual quality and that you understand the main situation that is exposed, despite its hypocritical and negative message.

A film can have a significant influence on the public, that is why I do not think that the issue of justified corruption is a subject to be exposed in a film that reaches many parts of the world and that can have an impact on the way of think about Mexican society, speaking from a point of view that lives in Mexico City. The film is not bad, but its message makes me not like it.
