Critic Reviews for Madeinusa
A familiar clash between old and new is rendered fresh and alive, with an edge of menace that slowly gets under your skin.
The assured debut of 29-year-old writer-director Claudia Llosa operates on several different levels.
A classically made yet personally accented fable about the clash between old and new in a strange Andean village in Peru.
Audience Reviews for Madeinusa
Steeped in an isolated Peruvian village that may or may not exist, the film feels more mythological than actual. The claustrophobia, grinding poverty, superstition, relentless diagetic music, and often surreal imagery with a descent into madness is a wicked brew. It's patient and sneaky. Story details are opaque, often rendered off screen. Who are these actors!? Shades of Bunuel. Unique, difficult, marvelous.
(*** 1/2): Thumbs Up A super-weird Peruvian film that will stay with you afterward. Well-acted and reminded me a lot of the works of Alejandro Jodorowsky.
Its one of those movies I wish I hadnt chose to watch. Should have picked something else. The ending is so unexpected, I dont get it at all. Though its more than just the ending. Movies like this, I just dont get what the whole point was.
