With minimal means and a cast of virtual unknowns (at least in North America), directors Juan Carlos Maneglia and Tana Schembori have come up with a good old-fashioned thriller whose clever script and macabre sense of humour keeps you engaged while offering a sly wink or two at our pursuit of celebrity—indeed, a final montage gives an undeniably sardonic spin to the old “fifteen minutes of fame” adage. Some frenzied editing and a memorable music score all add to the fun especially when a climactic wheelbarrow chase past deserted market stalls begins to rival any big budget automobile showdown. Not as polished as a Hollywood remake would be, but in the end that is where "7 Boxes" derives most of its charm.

This flic really took me by surprise! Excellent performances by three young actors who all have the impressive ability to flicker between child and adult (usually as the characters are exposed to economic pressures). This was a crime thriller that was also amazingly funny, without losing any of the tension (and there is a lot!) of the genre. This was just a pleasure to watch and I will definitely be keeping an eye out for new work from this talented directorial team. Non-Spanish-speaking fans of the genre would be foolish (no disrespect to the foolishly-challenged...), to pass on this one just because it is a foreign language film that didn't play at Cannes. There are some great cinematographic touches in this film; adding some unexpected beauty to a sometimes grim and brutal storyline. A blossoming romance between the two main characters adds a sweet and humorous layer that should increase the appeal to young and old. Add a fast-talking courier who's gig gets usurped, transforming him into a merciless and psychotic gunman on the trail of a couple of kids and the whole package comes together as an impressive and absorbing thriller that just tackles you with it's greatness.
