Claudia Llosa’s deserved Golden Bear winner offers a stirring, magical-realist portrait of modern Peru and its post-conflict traumas. Silent and self-ostracising Fausta (Solier) has imbibed her mother’s memories of murder and rape and become socially hindered with fear (physically manifest in the potato that she grows in her loins as a morbid method of contraception). Via ethereal cinematography and a soundtrack of melancholy local song, Llosa tenderly documents the slow, surreal process of both personal and community rehabilitation in a film which seeks to lay to rest a nation’s civil war grief.
