Canción sin nombre (2019)31338
Canción sin nombre: Directed by Melina León. With Pamela Mendoza, Tommy Párraga, Lucio Rojas, Ruth Armas. Georgina’s newborn daughter is stolen at a fake health clinic. Her desperate search for the child leads her to the headquarters of a major newspaper, where she meets a lonely journalist who takes on the investigation.
“Elegantly directed in Bu0026amp;W square format with an elegiac style that mixes Theo Angelopoulosu0026#39; static poetry with Alfonso Cuarónu0026#39;s shifting landscapes (particularly those of Roma), Song Without a Name unfolds three parallel plots: the kidnapping of Georginau0026#39;s baby, Pedrou0026#39;s homosexual affair with Isa, and the burgeoning terrorism in late 1980s Peru (in which Georginau0026#39;s husband is involved). What unites the three stories is Peru itself and its internal conflicts, amid which the protagonists find themselves cast away.”
