what a good representation of the 40's
18 November 2005 | by septimoarte-1See all my reviews

Libia Stella Gomez, in her prime opera, surprises us with an aestheticly rich movie: "La Historia del Baúl Rosado" ("The Pink Trunk story"). This movie tells the mysterious case of a dead girl found in a trunk in 1945, which was sent as a post delivery to a town far from Bogota (that is the place where this movie takes place). The art direction, the soundtrack, the costume designs, the performances, the direction, the cinematography, the screenplay... everything is perfect in this movie, although this movie is not perfect. The only thing that this movie doesn't have is a climax moment. But it's quiet a good Colombian-Mexican-Spanish movie, and it is a different film compared to the Colombian others, because it's not about violence, drugs, nor prostitution, and because is one of the few Colombian movies that are directed by a woman. It's very well-done and I'm sure it's one of the best pictures that I've ever seen.
