It doesn't matter who you choose to love, you know love has its complications. This beautifully filmed movie is set in a small town in the north of Peru, Cabo Blanco.
Being a Peruvian, I must say I'm very proud of it. The scenery is superb, the acting is brilliant -I even cried with the most dramatic scenes- and the story really reflects what happens in Peru and most parts of Latin America: if you're a "straight" man and you have sex with another man it's OK, as long as nobody knows it. But what if destiny has something new for you?
This DVD has interesting extras, such as interviews with director - Peruvian Javier Fuentes-León - and stars Cristian Mercado and Tatiana Astengo, a very talented Peruvian actress. Moreover, you get a stills gallery and the official trailer, which is one of the best I've seen. Oh, don't miss the song at the end of the film, it's called Aunque No Sea Conmigo, by Celso Piña and Cafe Tacuba. This is my own translation:
"You can take as long as you need
I'll be here, waiting for the day
You decide to come back and be happy
The way we used to be
I know well that you must be suffering, just like me
The loneliness that two lovers feel
When they decide to break up but still struggle
Not to see each other
But that doesn't mean
That I have stopped loving you, not even one day
I am with you, even though you're far away
Your happiness comes first, mine doesn't matter
But if you have now
Even half of the love I still feel for you
I swear, I bless the one who loves you
I want you to be happy, even if it's now with me".
Again, I'm very proud of this film, which has been pre-selected to represent Peru as a candidate for Best Film In A Foreign Language in the next Academy Awards.
