  • CarlosEsquives's rating of the film And So It Is

    Un filme que atrae debido a que no se inclina ante las constantes de un filme convencional. "Ukamau" dilata una venganza y antecede la rutina, la desigualdad de clases, el forastero destinado a ser desterrado hasta por sus propio círculo (¿cómo llegó Rosendo hasta ese lugar? ¿fue acaso expulsado anteriormente?), la mirada a sociedad arraigada por sus costumbres. La secuencia final tiene de western y montaje soviético
