[ATTENTION: This review reveals content of the movie.]
The director I had found in this wonderful film, Gonzalo Jusliniaro, had proven that Chile can compete with Argentina's new wave and avant garde cinema, though the latter was getting the most of the worldwide recognition now. The title of this film, I heard from an english phrase, it tells the bleak story of Katty, whose family slowly abandoned her by forcing her to rely on her own wits. The movie's narration never had lost focus from the lead character. It had been completely devoid by any sentimental series of vignettes, which had resembled visual postcards. We got the feeling by watching that Kate didn't know her father quite well, but in a moving scene he proudly relates the history and resilience of the family name. The cinematography was to me quite stunningly and very impressive. Actress Manuela (Martelli) (Katty) had portrayed her character's suffering with little emotions. This happened to be a very sad history as far as I was concerned, but in the same time that it was considered real history, that maybe happens all days in different parts of the world. Manuela Martelli, I must say in this film had opened a new era in Latin America actresses. She had supported almost perfect in the movie with a very unique charisma not seen in a Chilean actress for many years. Manuela had brought us alot of attention and found her to be a magnificent actress and sure she will be a success for other films in the near future similar to this one, which was to me quite successfully done.
