Ignacio Carrillo (Marciano Martínez) is a vallenato singer from Majagual, Sucre, who decides, after his wife's sudden death, to stop playing and return his accordion, which is said to be cursed, to his master. He is joined by Fermín Morales (Yull Núñez), a teenage boy who admires Ignacio and wishes to become a juglar like him. Carrillo reluctantly accepts, given his loneliness. On Ash Wednesday 1968, Carrillo, Morales and their donkey start a journey throughout several towns in the Caribbean region in Northern Colombia, until Taroa (a small caserío in Uribia jurisdiction), in La Guajira desert, where Carrillo's maestro supposedly lives. During their journey, Carrillo participates in the first version of the Vallenato Legend Festival in Valledupar.

Jeffrey M (es) wrote: A little uneven in tone and pace, but made largely enjoyable by a well written script and Robert Forster.

Adam M (fr) wrote: Bit of a 70's horror classic. A man taking a mysterious box onboard a train has made a fuck up cos whats inside the box is a monster he discovered that sucks peoples knowledge out of their brains and turns them into zombies when it makes eye contact with them. Pretty good make up effects for the 70's and the idea of setting it on a train is a good idea to. Good performances to from Vincent Price and Peter Cushing and despite what the flixster review thingy says, Christopher Lee isn't in this film, unfortunately!

Goldie Hawn and Steve Martin mesh well and though their continual mishaps are at times a little outrageous, they're also entertaining. I couldn't help but see a lot of the movie "Planes, Trains & Automobiles" in this, though I must say, I thought "Planes, Trains & Automobiles" was much better. It's a fun little film with plenty of laughs and a nice, sweet ending.

Angel V (ag) wrote: It's a indie movie (I think) maybe that's why people/critics complain about effects of all sci-fi.. In overall, I think It's a solid performance by Brit Marling in a movie that's NOT PREDICTABLE.. Original, not for the hollywood fanboy!
