Carne de tu carne

Carlos Mayolo Kolombia, 1983

saitosouta's rating of the film Bloody Flesh

Colombia's abominable history with vehement violence, rambanctiously chaotic sexuality of adolscence, miserable bourgeoisies at precipice by terrorism, grotesque legend which is wrapped in smell of blood. Using these interesting elements, dir. Mayolo made an oneiric fantasy horror, which, nevertheless, gives an impresssion that it devolved into an unfocused bummer due to overstuffing. Good premise, weak execution.
