  1. 80
    Enchanting, multilayered fable.
  2. 75
    Comedy with a light-hearted flair. The cast is charming, and Garcia is especially easy on the eye.
  3. The story is fascinating for its simplicity and its inherent truths about the downside of progress.

    Delightful Bolivian comedy, which also works as a sly critique of mass media.
  6. 50
    What appears to be the thrust of the story -- the unraveling of a society -- loses out to a tame, romantic triangle subplot.
  7. Agazzi's movie rather provincially hints at sexiness, humor, and satire without actually manifesting them.
