Yo perdi mi corazon en Lima (English title: I lost my heart in Lima) is a Peruvian film directed by Chilean director Alberto Santana in 1933, when Peruvian cinematographic industry was still making silent films. It contains a simple plot (a woman falls in love with a man who has to leave her in order to go to the war with Colombia) and acting, script and direction aren't so good. Even though, it's interesting to see this movie more than 70 years after its release because of its documentary style. You can see how was Lima in 1933, when Luis Sanchez Cerro was president and Peru was in war with Colombia. The film shows Miraflores, the airport (many years before its actual location), Sanchez Cerro checking his troops, headlines about the war, etc. In 1995 this film was restored and released in Filmoteca de Lima. Unfortunately, it is not available in DVD in Peru, but I saw a Brazilian edition. I saw this short film (length less than 1 hour) at Universidad de Lima. Trivia: This is the last silent fiction movie made in Peru.
