Director Francisco Lombardi's powerful political drama unveils the widespread web of corruption that permeated Peruvian society in the 1990s. A series of videotapes exposing unethical conduct at all levels of government and business led to the fall of the president's regime. It's against this backdrop of political scandal that Lombardi sets his film, interweaving six parallel stories that record the dark days of a country in moral crisis.

Everything ties up neatly, in the end, and I came away both entertained and educated in another country's recent and controversial history.

Lombardi juggles his strands, Magnolia style, his characters making rich commentary on the state of their country at a given time.

Audience Reviews for Ojos Que No Ven (What the Eye Doesn't See)


A rather interesting subject for me personally, though the methods used by the director/screenwriters were a bit too out there to fully follow during the first half or so. It did all fall into place, though, and the political commentary combined with the side storytelling made for a compelling watch.

Great Peruvian movie about the corruption during the Fujimori's government. Six interesting stories with good acting. Good because it shows the effects of the corruption in different kinds of people from different social classes.
