Juan Manuel López Baio,
Rosalía is a cashier at a supermarket. She lives alone, loves reading fairy tales and hides in a magic fantasy world in order to survive living in the real one. She thinks she is a fairy who came on a mission and got caught in this world. She travels by bus every day. At the bus-stop, there is a "web camera" which records images and puts them into the Internet. Santiago is a scientist who works in an international research project to detect signs of extraterrestrial intelligence. He is a lonely man who lives with his dog and his computer. Rosalía finds she has some extra-sensory powers and thinks three young women she knows are fairies. They will remarkably influence her life. She also feels the need to meet her father, whom she has not seen since she was 8.Written by
It has been extremely difficult to find Eliseo Subiela's films in Mexico City, however, I've heard (and read) extremely good comments about 'Man Facing Southeast' (1987), 'The Dark Side of The Heart I and II' (1992 and 2001) and 'Little Miracles' (1997). After watching Little Miracles, I begin to understand why. The story is quite simple: a young woman who believes is a fairy But just as Baz Luhrman in 'Moulin Reuge!', the magic of the movie is not in the story, but instead in the way of telling it. The images and little details that you can see in such a beautiful movie is what makes it so magical: the two characters that are blind (Susana and Don Francisco) and the way they see the life; the other three fairies (the girls that Rosalia meets in the Tango Night); Santiago (that is trying to prove extraterrestrial life and when he is not working talks all the time with Lola, his lovely dog that he thinks was an opera singer in her last life); the music, the music Rosalia sings and also the classical music that Don Francisco likes to listen; the texts of the books Don Francisco chooses each time Rosalia reads to him; the dreams that Rosalia has where always appear a fairy and are in black and white; and little phrases which only motive of appearing is making us think, such as: 'People is good, it's only that they don't have a chance to prove it', 'How strange life is so wonderfully mysterious', and 'Love is the everlasting innocence, and everlasting innocence is not thinking'. The message of the movie, to me would be that there are good things every minute in every corner, but we are always to busy to appreciate them.
