It shows as well the young love of Maxi to a police man Victor who saved him. The film underpinned concerns and ventures new discoveries. His sexuality is, however, fully accepted by his two brothers and by his father.
It would be the first and the last time that the MPP would give out the award. Although they're petty thieves you can't deny that they're good people: Maximo is a preteen boy who lives a feminine life, loved and cared for by his widowed father and two teenage brothers who all lead lives of petty crime.
Mostly a loner, he is also a gay man who gets to enjoy an occasional tryst with strangers who pass through the maze-like waterways.
Maxi's existence seems almost idyllic. That makes it amazing. Here we have a most powerful scene, when the eldest brother, the least likely to do so, decides against revenge to instead take care of Maxi, by looking at his other brother straight in the eye, as if to convey how suicidal revenge would be, and who then, would take care of Maxi after?
And will their friendship develop into a relationship? If a person wins the Gawad Urian, the person is held in high regard. Maxi likes to wear girly clothes with flowers in his hair.

He is also the object of El Turo's contempt and much of the film chronicles the antagonistic relationship between these two men. The potential melodrama of this adolescent love story is held deftly in check by scriptwriter Yamamoto who also wrote the child tragedy film Magnifico and Solito, who not only coaxes a convincing performance from newcomer Nathan Lopez, but also shades his environment with essential details of an impoverished community.
Yet another ponderous scene was at the end, where Maxi sashays down the road off to school, ignoring Victor leaning against his jeep. Maxi dresses, acts, even walks like an year-old American girl, flouncing down the street in a tight fitting tube top and miniskirt, swinging his hips and preening, joking with the guys on the street.
Nathan Lopez was there: His family was so over protective of him that caused Maximo to have a low masculinity level. Is he getting off scott free? Alvaro Jorge Roman makes a meager living by harvesting reeds, with a much older man named Iribarren, and repairing books for the nearest town's small library.
