A documentary about two different searches conducted in the Chilean Atacama Desert: one by astronomers looking for answers about the history of the cosmos, and one by women looking for the remains of loved ones killed by Pinochet's regime.
This is the best Chilean movie I have ever seen. For all the resources the Director had, Caiozzi made an excellent job recreating the rural Chile at the turn of the century. The psychological treatment of the characters and how crude and unmanageable the reality can be for an adolescent when too much is expected from him. The performances are marvelous. And at the end, I was left with the feeling that things practically haven't changed at all in Chile.
