Storyline

Madeinusa is a girl aged 14 with a sweet Indian face who lives in an isolated village in the Cordillera Blanca Mountain range of Peru. This strange place is characterized by its religious fervor. From Good Friday at three o'clock in the afternoon (the time of day when Christ died on the cross) to Easter Sunday, the whole village can do whatever it feels like. During the two holy days sin does not exist: God is dead and can't see what is happening. Everything is accepted and allowed, without remorse. Year after year, Madeinusa and her sister Chale, and her father Don Cayo, the Mayor and local big shot, maintain this tradition without questioning it. However, everything changes with the arrival in the village of Salvador, a young geologist from Lima, who will unknowingly change the destiny of the girl. Written by mad_janssen

I think this is the worst film I've ever seen.
25 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm not saying it was badly made. It was carefully crafted, the cinematography was beautiful, the fictional world was fully realized. But the experience of watching it was just...*horrible*.

I felt sick, during and long after. Yes, that made it very "edgy," but I can't think of a single redeeming thing about this film. Why such depravity? What was the viewer supposed to take away from it? Why explore such hideous characters in such depth? For what purpose? For the outsider, it presents the most damning picture of rural Peruvian life. Perhaps Peruvians found in it some kind of useful cultural commentary? It's hard to imagine. Watching kittens being skinned alive wouldn't have afforded any more pleasure.
