13-year-old Pablo is a quiet, lonely boy with a troubled past. His only friend is Julia, a shameless 15-year-old girl who is more than willing to help Pablo with his transition from childhood to adolescence, and give him some advice on sex, love and life in general. On a quiet country road just outside of the village, Pablo meets Paco, an oddly calm, well dressed stranger whose car just broke down. Nevertheless, he seems more interested in the boy than fixing his problem. At first Pablo maintains a cautious distance from the stranger, vaguely heeding his fellow villagers' advice to keep his distance. However, the boy's subconscious quest to find understanding of his dark past and guilt makes him lose all of his protective layers. He sees a new friend in Paco; someone he can open up to and feel valued by almost like a replacement father. As Pablo's affection grows for the man, he is unknowingly and blindly being lead toward a tragedy that will scar him for life.

The story line is somewhat weak and some of the acting is really cheesy. The first ten minutes of the film were not that bad, but wait, they used about 5 minutes of footage from the first Puppet Master movie. LOL. The main reason why I like these movies is because I like to see the puppets in action. What's not to love about the loveable Jester and Tunneler? Leach woman takes your breath away with her radiance and sultry look. HOWEVER, with this latest film, I was VERY upset at how they made the puppets look. The prop designer for this film should be fired. The puppets look really bad, poor Tunneler looks like he is drunk, Pinhead has a giraffe looking neck all of the sudden, and Blade looks like he is anorexic. You would think that with today's technology, graphic artists could make the puppets move with more fluidity, but alas, they look even more fake than the earlier films - they look stiff, cheap, and lifeless. Oh the sadness.

It would be one thing todubb a whole segment but to go back and forth between the same scene just isnt kosher. also in the final fight scene between Lawson and the Queen he cuts her from belley button to just even with her left breast. 15 seconds later it shows her cut from belley button to the right breast and then 5 seconds later back to left breast. Guess the editor couldnt make up hios mind which breast looked better. Not even close to his best work.

Ray Liotta does a pretty good job as the lead and Linda Fiorentino does a decent job as well (on a side note I haven't seen her in a film in years). The film does have a decent amount of twists and turns and even though most surprised me the final twist I did predict very early in the movie. Overall a fairly entertaining 90s thriller, but nothing really worth seeing unless you are bored.

Not only was it an immense historical-epic, but it was also chock full of psychological horror, like something from Stephen King. The whole movie seems to defend ancestral traditions and defy the revolutionary spirit, and so I'm amazed it survived the censors. But it all ties back to a basic Communist moral - devotion to the motherland. It was such a great film because you got to see the characters change and the effects of time passing on people. And the ending, the final scene in the cemetery - it was just too beautiful for words. It brought tears to my eyes.
