El filme revela lo que todo el mundo sabe pero nadie expresa con fuerza y convicción: la tierra esta siendo violada y sobrexplotada. La avaricia y la injusticia social van de la misma correa que las grandes trasnacionales y llegan a los rincones mas lejanos de esta tierra. Hermosa fotografía acompañada por el sincretismo Quchua revelan un poesia salvaje y enigmatica. Bravo por estas propuestas
Poor Quechuas, condemned to be trampled and resentful for life. Too bad for the kitsch soundtrack, that last part seemed like a video for Górecki's #3 instead of really concentrating on the film itself. I mean, you have a budget for a whole film, and not for an original score -c'mon!!!
I was impressed by the artistic elements and beautiful landscape shots. But, in contrast to The Fifth Season, this one lost the plot. I would have loved to see a more in-depth development of the character of the photographer. She felt like the fifth wheel in the second half. The artistic shots became frustrating, because while they were nice to watch, I felt there were essential narrative developments missing.
Despite a somewhat shaky, not entirely convincing ending, this is a marvelous thematic marriage of environmentalism and a critique of neocolonial globalization, painted in lush landscapes and bold camera strokes.
Beauty melted to a great script. In an age where everything is global, this story symbolize how all of our lives can be connected. Highlight to the mannequins dressed in black suits with white faces around the Chilean Andes which is, I'm pretty sure, a reference to the business men to blame for the mercury contamination.
