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

Bourgeois racism
23 June 2007 | by (Seattle, United States) – See all my reviews

I have (non-indigenous) family in Ecuador which borders Peru. The race issue in Latin America is a complex one and this film contributes nothing of value. I'm not saying indigenous people are saints but Llosa makes it pretty clear that she thinks Indians are nothing but ignorant savages, gleefully destroying their society for one week of hedonism.

The "God is dead" concept is like the cinematography: flashy at first, but ultimately hollow and over simplified. No society that small would bounce back after a week of total anarchy, which is why the festival makes no sense.

However, I will give it one star for the deflowering scene.
