A great film starring an Oscar-deserving teenage actress
19 March 1999 | by (Bologna, Italia) – See all my reviews

It's a pity that third world films don't get a distribution the way anything coming from Western Europe and Northern America gets. Anytime I leave a cinema after having seen a masterpiece such as this, I got the feeling that the distribution guys to be able to let us see any picture shot in the dominant world are depriving us of a lot of wonderful films they are too absentminded to sit and watch (and if they did, could they understand them anyway?). Laura de la Uz, the teenage protagonist in this film, is deserving of an Oscar (if the Oscar ever meant anything to anybody) and I'm sure that whoever got a prize that year in the best female main character category robbed her. While I'm writing, it's 1999, the film is dated 1990 and my heart aches at the thought that she could have starred in more films or, even worse, she could have made no fortune with her acting and could now be a forgotten school teacher or bartender. Pérez himself, who has shot only four films so far and whose "La vida es silbar" is almost as good as this, is a great director, as deserving as that other great Latin-American Solanas.
