Editorial Reviews

Isao has always been a special kid. He knows than being different could bring problems to this world; but what he ignores is that he is going to have an accident which will transfer him to a place called limbo : A rather mysterious and mind-blowing location in which he will meet a suicidal lawyer and a wacky nurse. Alongside those characters Isao will begin a journey towards self-knowledge and acceptance; this trip will take him into the intricate paths that connect heaven with hell and life with death. Will he be able to survive?Awards/Nominations: Winner of the Jury Award on the Los Angeles Latino International Film FestivalFormat: DVD MOVIE Genre: LATIN Rating: R Age: 876122002402 UPC: 876122002402 Manufacturer No: DMX-0200

I wasn't too sure what was in store for me with this Mexican gay indie flick. After watching it, I'm still struggling for a final opinion.

THE GOOD: Limbo is certainly original and you've probably not seen much like it. The underlying premise of hanging around somewhere between life and death as a basis for a coming-of-age character study actually works rather well. The main character, Isao, is sweet and charming enough to like and his wide-eyed curiosity about himself and the world around him is fun and gives the movie a spirit. The script is respectable and brings together many varied elements of the story in a compact and flowing manner. Watching Limbo, I was intrigued at what was going on and wanted to know what happens next - rare for gay indie cinema which is typically very formulaic.

THE BAD: Unfortunately, quite a bit of the technical stuff. The sound production is absolutely horrid in terms of effects, music, audio-ambiance, and dubbing (just watch the scene with the gym teacher approaching the showers... the audio makes the script's attempt at drama laughable). I often wondered when some of the "dramatic build-up" music was playing just who could have possibly thought that such cheap and awkward sounds were okay. The cinematography is pretty bad - brace yourself for a lot of short clips super-fast-flashed across the screen as a much-overused device. It appears as though it's shot on video tape and is not brilliant footage. The acting leaves much to be desired in just about every case (with the exceptions of the nurse and the lawyer who are not bad and Isao who varies from barely passable to okay) and in a couple of spots is positively horrible (the aforementioned gym teacher and the blind man).
