When I first listened about this film I could contain my anxiety. The idea of watching a Chilean woman director job, about the problems that some young people could have at my age, but in a different time really got my anxious. I went to the cinema within all the chaos of Marvel´s 'EndGame', but inside the room the closeness was unique. From the first scene I knew that i would love this film, and while it was progressing I really felt connected to the plot and characters. Something that could made me feel that way is that the protagonist is about my age, and that the time it was set generates a lot of tumult here in Chile. Whit this film I could watch a different point of view of the Chilean history, a closer one. I also loved the recording style, one that I have only seen in north american and french films; in that sense I felt proud about the Chilean advance in cinematography.
Changing the idea, I did not like the scenes of Magdalena Tótoro. Taking out the fact that she is still a little girl, I felt that she´s parts did not contribute at all in the advance of the plot. Almost like an expansion, this parts were too callow for the level of Dominga Sotomayor as a director. I think that the movie could have been much better without this scenes.
For the rest the film is really great, I loved everything else of it, specially the act of Demián Hernández. Hope for them two, Dominga Sotomayor and Demián Hernández, to make more and better films, winning more prizes and having a excellent career. 8/10
