вЂLina From LimaвЂ™ Toronto Review
Source Toronto Global Film Festival
Dir. Maria Paz Gonzalez. Chile, Argentina, Peru. 2019. 83 mins
There isn’t any shortage of migrant tales which follow figures relocating in search of an improved life. Far less in which individuals really realize that better life. A 35-year-old domestic worker in Chile comes to terms with the rupture from her former existence and identity in Peru, and takes the opportunity to reinvent herself as a free woman in this airy first feature from Maria Paz Gonzalez. ItвЂ™s an engaging but story that is rather slight provided heft by way of a sensual central performance from Peruvian actress Magali Solier and sparkle by the fantasy musical sequences which are threaded in to the textile for the photo.

The juxtaposition of social realism and strikingly styled numbers that are musical be the element that will differentiate this image from other similarly themed material regarding the event circuit. Lina From Lima dips its toe in camp excess but pulls right back through the kitsch that is full of a film like Diamantino; as a result, it might probably lack the selling point that could persuade suppliers to take the plunge. The movie displays in TIFF Discovery having won two awards during the BACIFI Work with Progress competition in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Lina (Solier) has, for the decade that is past worked as a maid for the affluent household in Chile.
