The Milk of Sorrow (2009)

The “The Milk of Sorrow” is a film I did not like. It speaks about people that are really frightened, almost without hope, who have very few things in life to rejoice with. Even those few things are sometimes stolen from them. Elementary things that go without saying are lacking from their lives. Yet, the human nature may find a shelter in “small” things, like a flour given by a caring person…
Somebody has to speak for such people and Claudia Llosa said things, in a direct, non-exaggerating way, I did not know that are happening in her country. Sometimes, it may be too much even to see them in a movie.

My rating: 06/10
