Powerful judgement on tyranny
26 October 2009 | by sergepesicSee all my reviews

" Mariposa Negra" or "Black butterfly" is the best kind of political movie. It clearly conveys its passionate message without neglecting the artistic vision. The corrupt regime of Alberto Fujimori improved the economic situation in Peru, but the heavy price to pay for that was incredible crackdown on opposition and multiple political assassinations. The movie has all the staples of ancient Greek tragedy: love, death, revenge, sacrifice, all successfully transposed to 1990's Peru. Times might change, but the human nature barely does. Same powerful and primal emotions still determine our lives and our hopes and dreams.
