Lola
dir Maria Novaro, Mexico 1989 (official release 7 Feb 1991)

An imperfect woman 5*

This excellent film is sandwiched between two magical cinematic moments. It opens, during credits, with the simplest of low budget indie scenes, a young girl playing rock star to a catchy pop tune, entering from behind cheap living room curtains, in a flashlight spot, with a toy guitar. After a while she is replaced by a young woman in a red blouse, with a toy mandolin, equally as abandoned to the game. I was immediately captivated, with possibility as well as the moment -- could this even be Lola at two stages of her life, I wondered?

And it closes, as final credits roll, with a very simple, moving scene, Lola and Ana walking and playing on the beach to the the plaintive yet bouncy "Si tu te va" ("If you should leave"). In several viewings, this finale never fails to give me goosebumps.

Between these two bookends, in one sense not much happens, but in another sense everything, life itself, happens. The film centers around Lola, played by Leticia Huijara in a pitch perfect performance. Lola loves her daughter Ana (aka "Little Mouse", Alejandra Vargas) dearly, but her parenting skills, beyond simply pleasing Ana, are not the greatest. It's more as if she wants to be a friend or big sister than the sometimes mean mommy. She also has anger control issues, brought on by the frustrations of young, quasi-single motherhood, stupid men, or the economic and social uncertainty following the disastrous 1985 earthquake. On seemingly minor provocation, she lashes out at Ana's father Omar, or even (indirectly) at Ana. Her entire life seems somewhat slapdash.

Since our town has a significat Latino population, I've been purchasing Spanish-language DVDs for the library. "Lola" has received a number of awards and great reviews. This drama will be popular with our patrons.
