A great film!
23 April 2006 | by (Peru) – See all my reviews

"Chicha tu Madre" by Gianfranco Quattrini is great news for Peruvian cinema. This is a film that finally approaches our moral meanderings with a true vision. Julio Cesar is a beautiful character (charmingly portrayed by Jesus Aranda) who undertakes his life without major worries, even though his life is clearly astray. He simply stumbles along finding his way as the road unravels. Such as life truly is in this part (and many others) of the world, when numerous reasons lead one to put aside moral concerns when a quick opportunity may lead to some personal advantage.

The film is close to Satyajit Ray's style and simplicity. And the use of the Tarot, as a narrator in the film, is a fascinating element, contradicting Julio Cesar's dubious behavior with deep insight that he seems to ignore as he moves towards a new opportunity for himself. The film is bursting with intense colors, used with great expression to portray Julio Cesar's unsought-for process of transformation. There is great beauty in this film that is truly Latin- American yet also universal, as Julio Cesar is a true human being, with his strengths and weaknesses.

I highly recommend this film that dares to undertake popular culture and create a gentle contemplative film with wonderful performances and great cinematography. Latin America is expressed. After "Amores Perros" & "Y tu mama también", "Chicha tu Madre" takes a step sideways and tells a simple story of that resonates deeply in our rooted, unconscious day to day behaviors. A few years from now the film will be recognized as a landmark in Peruvian cinema.
