My God what a tremendous film. I've seen it two times. Didn't enjoy it the first time (maybe was too young to get into it) but now, I can appreciate all the things this film does right. Every character shines on their own and are memorable; the pacing, while a little slow, always pays off either comedically or dramatically (sometimes even a little bit of both). And hats off to Claudia Llosa. Never stop making cinema.
