Clemente, a moneylender of few words, is a new hope for Sofía, his single neighbor, devoted to the October worship of Our Lord of the Miracles. They're brought together over a new-born baby, fruit of Clemente's relationship with a prostitute who's nowhere to be found. While Clemente is looking for the girl's mother, Sofía cares for the baby and looks after the moneylender's house. With the arrival of these beings in his life, Clemente has the opportunity to reconsider his emotional relations with people. Written by
Clemente is a stoic private moneylender with a penchant for prostitutes. He finds a new born baby but the prostitute mother has walked away. The social worker convinces him to take in the baby. As he tries to find the mother, his neighbor Sofía helps take care of the baby. Sofía is religious devoted to worshiping Our Lord of the Miracles which the city celebrates in October.
The characters are played with calculated deliberate distance and stoicism. It makes them hard to connect with. It becomes a grind to wait for the emotions and intensity. The story takes place in the poor part of Lima but it doesn't have that energy. The static feel is an artistic choice which doesn't excite me.
