Nona. Si me mojan, yo los quemo

Camila José Donoso Cile, 2019

saitosouta's rating of the film Nona. If They Soak Me, I'll Burn Them

Rotterdam #7: At first, "Nona. Si me mojan, yo los quemo" is boring and incoherent in both storytelling and direction, but, as getting more torrid chaotically, it becomes a sinister enigma like a burning mirage on the sea. Eventually, this Chilean "Burning" depicts hideously iridescent darkness, which connects with ominous history in Chile, with kaleidscopic fire splendidly. Slow-burn yet rewarding.
