review by
Mike Haberfelner

Journalist couple Amir (Mazin Akar) and Amat (Kaolin Bass) are invited to a trip to the Bolivian jungle by their friend Amancaya (Andrea Camponovo) to document the beauty of the place and the ecological crimes by big corporations - but they soon find the locals are seeing the strangers as part of the problem rather than of the solution and distrust them madly. All but Amancaya's brother Amaru (Vitorio Lema) of course, who's glad to take them on a tour through the jungle - a tour that soon takes a nightmarish turn, as if nature would reject the strangers just as much as the locals, and ends in Amat turning violent towards Amir and ultimately taking off into the woods. All of Amir's efforts to find him lead to nought, and even his attempts to enlist Amaru's help are met with indifference. Then there's a knock on Amir's door, and the person on the other side of the door puts the whole story into a whole different light, a light that gets one worrying ...


Now this is not an easy-to-digest movie, it's deliberately disturbing and confusing, and mired in associations and metaphors, it doesn't serve any simple answers nor any cheap shocks, and it's intentionally deceptive in its storytelling - and that all is a very good thing, as the result of all of this is a quite fascinating and fittingly atmospheric blend of South American folk horror, nightmarish trip and arthouse flick, a movie that has a very unique feel to it, and one that might stay with you for days - disturbingly so mayby, but that's what good horror is all about after all.
