Editorial Reviews

Our Spanish Language DVD pack contains three great award-winning films, MADEINUSA from Peru, VIVA CUBA from Cuba, and CAROL'S JOURNEY from Spain.

MADEINUSA:
Madeinusa is a sweet-faced 14-year-old girl who lives in a dirt-floor house and dreams of the world beyond the village. It is the custom of her town that from Good Friday at three in the afternoon (just when Christ died on the cross) through Easter Sunday, sin does not exist. On the eve of this time of small-town debauchery, Salvador, a young geologist from Lima, accidentally comes to town. The town greets him with curiosity and ire, then imprisons him out of fear that he will interfere with the festivities. But Madeinusa, ever curious about things from the big city, is drawn to him, and her fate begins to turn in unexpected ways. Winner - Int'l Film Festival Rotterdam. Official Selection - Sundance, Seattle and Tribeca Film Festivals. In Spanish with English subtitles.

"That [director] Llosa has never directed for the camera before is remarkable considering how accomplished the film is...." -- Robert Koehler, Variety.

VIVA CUBA:
Malú is from an upper-class family and her single mother does not want her to play with Jorgito, as she thinks his background is coarse and commonplace. Jorgito's mother, a poor socialist proud of her family's social standing, places similar restrictions on her son. What neither woman recognizes is the immense strength of the bond between Malú and Jorgito. When the children learn that Malú's mother is planning to leave Cuba, they decide to run away and travel to the other side of the island to find Malú's father and persuade him against signing the forms that would allow it. Winner - Junior Prize - Cannes Film Festival. Official Selection - Toronto, London and San Francisco Film Festivals. In Spanish with English subtitles.

"Director Malberti has a simple, unfussy style that reflects his young heroes' clear-eyed naïveté....." --Adam Nayman, Eye Weekly.

CAROL'S JOURNEY:
Carol, a twelve-year-old Spanish-American girl from New York, travels with her mother to Spain in the spring of 1938, at the height of the Civil War. Separated from her beloved father, Carol arrives in her mother's home village and transforms the secretive family environment. Her innocence and rebellious nature drive her at first to reject a world that is at once new and foreign. But she soon journeys into adulthood through a friendship with Maruja, the village teacher, and a young local boy, Tomiche. Winner - Berlin Film Festival. In Spanish with English subtitles.

"A little gem by the name of Carol's Journey ... the personal message of this type of film drives much deeper into our hearts as the events unfold in such a manner as to remind us that life goes on as much as war comes at a greater cost than we tend to realize." -- Don Houston, DVD Talk

As a big fan of Latin American and Spanish cinema I will definitely put this at the top of my wish list!

Among the three, I've seen Viva Cuba - a witty, heart-warming story two kids and their journey across Cuba in pursue of a girl's father, their joint struggle against the decisions of the grown-ups and the test their friendship stands up to.

I came across some raving reviews of two other films and would really love to have this set.
