Delightful, Intriguing and Original Tale of Friendship, Love and Self-Discovery
On 30 December, in the airport of Mexico City, the husband of Lucia (Cecilia Roth) vanishes a few minutes before the last call to the flight to Rio de Janerio, where they are going to see the reveillon in Copacabana. Lucia goes to the police to report the disappearance, and back home, she is mainly supported by two neighbors, the seventy years old Félix (Carlos Álvarez-Novoa) and the young man Adrián (Kuno Becker). Together, they look for Lucia's husband, in a journey of friendship, love and self-discovery for Lucia. Alternating the reality and the imagination of the character of Lucia, who is the narrator of the story, "La Hija del Cannibal" is a delightful, intriguing and original tale. The mysterious story is very unpredictable, and includes a tough critics to the corruption of the Mexican government. Cecilia Roth is excellent and very charming, as usual, very well-supported by Carlos Álvarez-Novoa and Kuno Becker. I liked this movie a lot and highly recommended as a very fresh screenplay. My vote is seven.
