This particular version of Naples is home to Antonio Barracano, the young, vigorous and tattooed Mayor of Rione Sanità who plays by his own rules; a paternal figure who oversees the licit and illicit activities unfolding within the city.

Three friends are part of an opposition group in the chaotic Chile of the early 70's and together commit a political crime that changes the history of the country and incidentally involves them in a betrayal that separates them forever.
I went to watch this movie expecting to hate it. When i saw the trailer i thought it was going to be, like the title of another review, stylish garbage. Is not that.
I am 33 and from latinamerica, where regeton is very dominant... and i hate regeton, i find that is vulgar, and repetitive. So, to go watch a movie that focus that much on that type of music was a surprise for me, becasue i loved it.
Aesthetically, is brilliant. I found that the image is sublime and the music was immersive and defiant. Combined with dances is used as a mean for micro revolutions in the plot.
Also is quite interesting how regeton personifies a battle for philosofical discussion between Gael garcia (whos character is in his 30´s and has a conservative pov) and Mariana Di Girolamo (whos character is in her early 20´s and has a progressive pov). Most of the interpretations are brilliant
Finally, the script is not the strongest pont, but unfolds as the movie develops, showing just enough until the final part.
If you have a chovinist, conservative or boomer mentality, you will hate this movie, that is guaranteed
