Sole and Ana travel around the city in her bycicles, sometimes by themselves, and sometimes accompanied by some BMX lovers. One day, in a car parked insided Sole's grandma's garden, the girls find something they would rather forget as soon as possible. Filmed in Costa Rica, the most recent film by guatemalan director Julio Hernández Cordón goes back to one of his most common themes within his filmography: youth's frensy, ever shining in a time that lacks from the future's perspective.
“The guatemalan cinematographer, Julio Hernández Cordón, gives another step in his career in describing, through film, the virtues and needs of the actual world’s youth with his movie Atrás hay relámpagos.”
— José Luis García: Cinestel
“In order to be sorrounded by the rich atmosphere of the movie, for moments fun and relaxed, others painful and decadent, one needs to be pacient and sentitive.”
— David Ornelas: Icónica
“At first glance, it is hard to follow film , but with a little bit of reflexion, one starts to understand how real life events are gathered; the why as to something happens at certain times and why some others happend very specifically. Wheter it be sad or happy, the movie also shows that the past helps us to understand the present, and how to be prepared for the future.”
