Ecuador in Film
22 March 2009 | by Jose_GabrielSee all my reviews

This movie is Tania Hermida's masterpiece. Although it doesn't show all of Ecuador's wonders and sorrows, it surely gives a good impression of it. This, because Ecuador itself is way to complex to summarize in one movie. However, "Que Tan Lejos" shows Ecuador as it is, not like a postcard or a news-teller would show it. Plus, it lets people see how other people see the country: one one hand, you have Tristeza (Sadness: In Ecuador, you have women named Esperanza-Hope, Alegría-Joy, Soledad- Loneliness), a college student that will be considered by some people a "Socialist Party" member because she recalls Ecuadorian problems without any pity and Teresa: a Spanish tourist that comes with no idea of the real Ecuador, but doesn't want to do any harm to it. This movie is so special because, even though the events in the movie aren't real, they're pretty close to all the car trips that we Ecuadorians make. Plus, it allows foreigners to taste Ecuador as it really is.
