Storyline

Las Malas Intenciones, tells the story of a period in the life of Cayetana, an eight years old girl growing up in Peru in the early 80's, when terrorist violence was starting to agitate the country. The story unfolds from the point of view of this intelligent child, but with a somewhat dark and distorted personality. Daughter of separated parents, Cayetana spends most of the time on her own and under the care of their employees. After returning from a long trip, the mother, Agnes, gives her some unexpected news: she is pregnant. With this news Cayetana's fragile world collapses. She locks herself in her room and solemnly declares that the day of birth of her brother will be the day of her own death. Only your imagination and the emergence of the national heroes of their textbooks - Olaya, Grau, Bolognesi - may save her from an increasingly alienated family environment in a country about to collapse.

Did not keep my interest
24 September 2014 | by (Oakland, New Jersey) – See all my reviews

Peruvian film set in 1982 as the Communist Shining Path group tried to violently force a terrible change on the Democratic Peru. But the movie has next to nothing to do with that, it's merely in the background. A nine-year old girl deals with her divorced parents and upcoming baby sibling. But she wants none of... anything really and becomes a deviant little delinquent. Bad intentions she has? The things she does are really not that bad. As she becomes so disinterested in everything, I became disinterested in her. The lead actress was so one-dimensional that it made it difficult to give a crap about her. I wish I had been able to find a different movie from Peru to watch. Oh well. It was still mildly interesting to watch, as are so many foreign films from incredibly different lands than our own.

5.5 / 10 stars
