El aceite de Lorenzo toma lugar en un suceso que de hecho ocurrió en la vida real, lo que provocó múltiples cuestionamientos al sistema de salud y cómo la industria farmacéutica se veía en un estado de omnipotencia inobjetable en la que mucho enfermo inocente es visto como un número más y un caso del montón.

I wasn't expecting much from this movie. Indeed, it seemed to be one of those typical dreadful true lifetime stories with some annoying sentimental music. However, I must admit it, I was this time really swept away by this story and it is the proof that this genre which I usually despise can be actually quite spellbinding. The weird thing is that the story is actually rather straightforward (a you... read more

The film was based on actual effects, Lorenzo’s Oil garnered mixed reviews, and it was a moderate success. Though the film seemed to accurately portray the events related to the boy's condition and his parents' efforts during the time period covered by the film, it was criticized for "

“El aceite de Lorenzo toma lugar en un suceso que de hecho ocurrió en la vida real, lo que provocó múltiples cuestionamientos al sistema de salud y cómo la industria farmacéutica se veía en un estado de omnipotencia inobjetable en la que mucho enfermo inocente es visto como un número más y un caso del montón. Esta película intenta documentar la manera en la que gente desesperada intentó llevarle la contra a muchas leyes injustas dentro del movimiento científico al formar parte de un pequeño grupo de víctimas de un caso muy específico en el mundo.

Los padres proactivamente buscan la solución para su hijo Lorenzo, quien debe pasar una enorme parte de su infancia transformado en un vegetal por su enfermedad, lo cual es expuesto a modo de docudrama para ir atravesando ” read more

Best Films of 1993 (100 movies items)

"Nolte and Surandon are actors I usually can't stand but they're at least tolerable in this well-crafted film. Anna Paquin got all the attention with her child performance this year in "The Piano"; but Zack O'Malley Greenberg turned in a stirring performance as well here."
