A compelling portrait of the culture and social issues that Ecuador faces.
20 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have not seen a movie that portraits and demystifies the contemporary Ecuador, particularly in Quito and Cuenca, both Andean cities. The dialogue in this movie is extremely clever, and it captures the subtleties of culture, especially language. Esperanza, a woman from Barcelona, Spain visits Ecuador, where she meets Teresa in a bus going from Quito, the capital, to Cuenca. During their trip, they face a strike and continue their trip on foot. They meet Jesus on the way, who in my opinion is the best actor in this film. Teresa, who tells her impromptu friends that her name is "Tristeza" (sadness), wants to stop her boyfriend's wedding in Cuenca. My only issue with this movie is the end, that lacks a resolution and seems pretty vague. The soundtrack by Nelson García is superb. In the end, watching this movie is like reading a great book; it is open to many interpretations.
