María Elena Marqués,
The story of an orphan girl, brought up in naive, rustic innocence by an elderly relative, who is suddenly exposed to the brutality, greed and deceptiveness of the outside world, when her grandmother dies.
The Peruvian anti-terrorist army takes control of a far away and unknown small village isolated in the Andes by the terrorist militia "Sendero Luminoso" (Shining Path), during the dirty war in Peru at 80's decade.
Urban and rural living collide in this tragic drama.
This film is mostly about the rural living of a family who moves out of the city. The young boy, Romulo, does not know what the "big city" looks like and he uses his imagination to make his own out in the jungle. His family must deal with their decision, which sometimes brings terrible consequences. The editing and juxtaposition of images make this a true statement between what is right and wrong with the governments of Latin-America. The non-linear way of storytelling is used at it's best, which makes this film all the more interesting.
