Critic Reviews for Altiplano (Fragments of Grace)
Altiplano sees Brosens and Woodworth take a bold and unpredictable approach in calling attention to an environmental catastrophe.
If a film may do penance for its narrative faults with the grace of its visuals, Altiplano does so in dramatic fashion.
Filled with mythic style and magical thinking, Altiplano feeds the eyes but gives rations to the mind.
If Ingmar Bergman had made a Peruvian message movie, it might look something like this slow-building, panoramic meditation about the effects of mercury contamination in the Andes mountains.
Co-collaborators Peter Brosens and Jessica Woodworth still cheapen their ethnological lyricism by over-stylizing the venture as if it were a Benetton ad by Alejandro Jodorowsky-lite.
Writer-directors Peter Brosens and Jessica Hope Woodworth are less interested in telling a conventional story than in dispensing poetic impressions. And, boy, do they.
