Desnudo con Naranjas is one of the best films ever done in Venezuela. It is Lamata (the director) at his best; he just made a fine piece of art in all senses: from art direction to acting, from cinematography to music. I just can say that this is an almost perfect film. It leads you to a journey through a very difficult period of our history: the Federal War, and you can witness a very original period love story with typical elements of the Latinamerican culture, such as magic realism and the limitless passion of a barbaric point of view, proper of a hurted and conflicted nation, but in a very personal way. An indian soldier and a misterious mute woman (two of the most imprehesive and outstanding performances that I have ever seen in any picture of any country) are the leading couple who share their moments and through problems live their romance. If you want to know the Latin American films or you already know them and like them, this is the film to see. It´s the film to know a little bit of our culture, specifically, the venezuelan.
