Heli Review

Image for Heli

Twenty year-old Heli (Espitia) tries to keep his head down in gangland Mexico, living with his wife, baby, dad and young sister (Vergara). But to no avail. His sister's boyfriend has stashed cocaine on his property and gangland Mexico is coming to find him...


A young Mexican husband’s life is ripped apart after his little sister starts seeing an older man. There’s a truly gruelling torture scene, and sour suggestions made about machismo, brutality and broken communication. It’s well-told and shot, yet ultimately unrewarding.

Grim and gritty. Warning: contains punishing scenes of testicle burning.
