Product Description

Spanish: Un drama ingeniosamente enmarcado en una cátedra de humor. Julio César (Jesús Aranda), es un apasionado del tarot que va por la misteriosa y multicultural ciudad de Lima (Perú) en su taxi, prestando atención a las señales del Tarot para tomar las decisiones importantes de su vida. Cuando su única hija de 16 años, Yoselin, queda embarazada, Julio César siente que ha llegado el momento de cambiar su destino. Guiado por su infalible Tarot conoce a una prostituta (Tula Rodríguez) y luego a un enfermero argentino (Pablo Brichta), personajes decisivos en el rumbo que toma su vida.

English: An intense drama where humor mixes in to highlight some of the films events. Julio Cesar is a passionate believer in Tarot cards and centers the most important decisions of his life in their readings. When his only teenage daughter becomes pregnant, Julio Cesar feels it is time to change his destiny. Guided by his infallible Tarot he meets a prostitute and a nurse and one of these characters will ultimately hold his destiny.

Review

Chicha tu Madre by Gianfranco Quattrini is great news for Peruvian cinema. This is a film that finally approaches our moral meanderings with a true vision. Julio Cesar is a beautiful character (charmingly portrayed by Jesus Aranda) who undertakes his life without major worries, even though his life is clearly astray. He simply stumbles along finding his way as the road unravels. Such as life truly is in this part (and many others) of the world, when numerous reasons lead one to put aside moral concerns when a quick opportunity may lead to some personal advantage. The film is close to Satyajit Rays style and simplicity. And the use of the Tarot, as a narrator in the film, is a fascinating element, contradicting Julio Cesars dubious behavior with deep insight that he seems to ignore as he moves towards a new opportunity for himself. The film is bursting with intense colors, used with great expression to portray Julio Cesars unsought-for process of transformation. There is great beauty in this film that is truly Latin- American yet also universal, as Julio Cesar is a true human being, with his strengths and weaknesses. I highly recommend this film that dares to undertake popular culture and create a gentle contemplative film with wonderful performances and great cinematography. Latin America is expressed. After Amores Perros & Y tu mama también, Chicha tu Madre takes a step sideways and tells a simple story that resonates deeply in our rooted, unconscious day to day behaviors. A few years from now the film will be recognized as a landmark in Peruvian cinema. --IMDB.com

... Quattrini presents a fascinating view that either could be defined as empathy critical understands and respects his characters while many of them show their bad habits…

This is a movie about every day life in Peru. People striving to survive. Corruption is everywhere rampant, but generosity sometimes is displayed unexpectedly.
There is not much of a plot ; it is sort of a fortnight in the life of an ordinary guy, during which his life takes some changes.
I enjoyed it. I like realistic movies.
