Storyline

Manita, who is concerned because her husband hasn't had sex with her in months, decides to visit a mysterious woman, Lurdita, who is believed to be a witch. Lurdita asks Manita to change the virgin of the church to The Black Virgin. Behind everybody's back and with the approval of Isabel, the founder of the town, The Black Virgin becomes their new patron. Strange things now begin to happen in this fishing village changing the routine of its inhabitants: there is no longer darkness, the violence is stopped, and people fall in love again.

Funny but Symbolic
15 March 2009 | by (Kaohsiung, Taiwan) – See all my reviews

The film dictated by a child is on the one hand humorous, funny and cute, and on the other hand symbolic and critical. It's symbolic and critical in a way that it smartly highlights the interactions between black and white in a mixed ethnic community, and it portrays the repetitive lifecycle of the local people which is closely tied to their religious beliefs (Catholic and black magic/folklore). It is also critical of the consequence: powerful witches, people who blindly follow the orders, the ethnic/racial differences subtly reflected in everyday conversation. I give it a 7/10 because it successfully deals with serious issues in a comic and light way and allows me to know the cultural background in Venezuela better.
