The routine of Rosa Chumbe will be altered when her 18-year-old daughter steels the few savings she had and leaves the house, abandoning her son. This incident will lead Rosa to follow the steps of the Lord of Miracles, while getting lost amidst incense smoke and the fervor of procession.

Far from the over-used format of few themes, few tones, few incidents, and a small margin of error, Jonatan Relayze Chiang makes a brave bet for Latin American independent cinema. Rosa Chumbe is not an attractive woman, she doesn’t work well, and gets along with almost no one: she bumps along through life, without taking care of others. Charged with mysticism, or an atavistic remain of devotion, she carries the low fi evilness of resentment and a skin hardened by a reality that seems to dissolve in alcohol, frustration, and colorful food. This combination of black comedy, urban tragedy, and redemption story is framed by the city of Lima, captured with a raw yet passionate eye with neon lights reminiscent of Wong Kar-wai. The film’s rough edges are part of its nature, its risk-taking attitude, its uniqueness, and its bold way of making cinema. JPF
