Storyline

American resort developers bear down on the wild west coast of Nicaragua, hoping to build the next tourist paradise. With lax labour and environmental regulations, some of the developers take full advantage of the situation, and the local fishermen start accusing them of exploitation and land thievery. Unexpectedly, in the midst of this conflict, firebrand Daniel Ortega and the Sandinistas sweep back into government, boldly empowering the local fishermen. The tables turn viciously on the American developers, who get much more than they bargained for. But when the local fishermen, corrupted by new found power, begin acting in the same manner as the American developers, questions are posed about human nature, morality, and ethics on a much larger scale.

the films summery is decpetive
7 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this is the sort of film that should be shown in history classes in the USA.

BUT FIRST The IMDb summary of Land is not just deceptive but possibly designed to make you not watch it. It is not so much a mischaracterization but an actual slur. i.e. "But when the local fishermen, corrupted by new found power, begin acting in the same manner as the American developers" DOES NOT APPEAR IN THIS FILM.

Rather one or two shady Americans actually get their deserved Dickensian comeuppance. Half of the yanks in the movie are quite nice and opened minded. The local villagers were just reacting the way anyone reacts when abused by snobs with more money than sense.

I thought I might know the story and the summary seemed to promise little more than an homily on power. In fact as the other reviewer here says it is a fascinating and well balanced study of the kind of land speculation we see home and abroad. But in this case these American's ignorance of not just Nicaraguan history but of Hispanic culture generally seems so 1980's it's hard to imagine but there you are. Great story and characters on all sides and well told.

What a beautiful land, change will come but it should be in the hands of the people that hold it not those with just dollars in theirs.
