La delgada linea amarilla / The Thin Yellow Line

Director:

  • Celso García 

Cinco hombres son contratados para pintar las líneas centrales en un tramo de autopista de 200 km en San Luis Potosí. Armados con un camión viejo, un perro y  pintura amarilla, los hombres se proponen  trabajar en el sofocante calor. Esta tarea aparentemente tediosa cambiará para siempre sus vidas. Una línea sutil entre el bien y el mal, pasados ​​reprimidos, la risa y la desesperación, la vida y la muerte, los actos crueles del destino y nuevos destellos de esperanza esperan a lo largo del camino. Una película de carretera en el sentido más estricto… este film sin pretensiones filosóficas, es una historia de carretera, de rectas, curvas, baches y giros inesperados … como la vida misma.

 

 

Five men have been given the task of re-marking the central lines on a 200 km highway stretch in San Luis Potosí. Armed with an old truck, a dog, and a few yellow paint pots the men set to work in the sweltering heat. This apparently tedious task will change the lives of the dissimilar comrades forever. Repressed pasts, a fine line between good and evil, laughter and despair, life and death, cruel acts of fate and new glimmers of hope are awaiting along the roadside… A road movie in the truest sense of the term, this unpretentiously philosophical, heart-warming film is a story of smooth roads and bumpy rides, with unexpected twists and turns… like life itself.
