Storyline

La Virgen Negra (The Black Virgin) narrates the surprising changes in the lives of the people in a small fishing village after the appearance of a Black Virgin. In the authentic style of "Postman: Il Postino" (Neruda's Postman by Skármeta) and "Chocolate" by Lasse Hallström, La Virgen Negra is a mixture of magic and comedy that tells a romantic story that takes place in a colorful rural environment saturated with music, sensuality and "sabor". The black virgin stopped it from getting dark, stopped the vandals invasion, killed and sickened some, fattened and thinned others; but above all, disrupted the routine lives of the people in a catholic town, that never imagined it could be a victim of the Caribbean magic. After a few months something unbelievable happened and that is when the inhabitants of "El Pueblo de Negros" had to face the most cruel change of all, the one, no one could avoid.

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.
