Great stuff about the class divide
20 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Peruvian journalist Pedro Salinas writes, "Behind Gods, the movie, lurks a revolutionary, a teacher from the magic of living, who at the point of close-ups and frames studied achieved a description of one of the usual problems of Peru... Mendez set out boldly onto the screen his vision of a minority of Peruvian in which everyone talks, they meet, they drink and they are happy, while another Peru, a most impoverished majority, serves the needs of this frivolous few." This richly drawn, psychologically complex film paints a dark picture of a privilege life side by side with poverty in Peru. But Mendez' use of a light hand, an unsparing humor, beautiful bodies and settings make for an enjoyable and thought provoking hour and a half.
