A spectacular film. Far exceeded my expectations. Its grim, sad, creepy, and moving. Like others have said it has a magical realism vibe like Pan's Labyrinth. Highly recommend if you do not mind subtitles.

I got to see this in a local theater when it was released in the US. It was moving, tense, at times scary, and wonderfully acted. Highly recommend.

Wasn't expecting the kill scenes - brutal! Very dark and gritty but extremely well done.

Just wow. A real depiction of what the narco-warfare has done to children, and to make it into some metaphorical fairytale that really makes you want to believe in wishes. 10/10 would recommend.
