Movie I dig 006: Los colores de la montaña (The colors of the mountain) (2010)

This is a story about a few young friends who are living in a remote village in the Colombian mountains. Manuel plays football everyday with his best friend Julián. He even gets a new football for his birthday. Then one day the ball shoots off the football field and ends up in a until then unknown minefield. The friends with the help of another friend Poca Luz, try different things to get their ball back.

During these adventures there is a danger shaping in the background. It is not quite clear what this conflict is about, but it is an armed conflict and there are guerillas and another armed group involved.

All these problems are set against the background of a very pretty landscape that only shows it’s dark-side because of the human problems in it. Credits for this debuting director to make the scenery just right.

All in all I quite enjoyed this ‘Los colores de la montaña‘. The young friends act quite good and realistic.

Here’s the trailer:
