Madeinusa is a 14-year-old girl with a sweet Indian face. She lives in an isolated village in Peru's Cordillera Blanca Mountain range, a strange place characterized by its religious fervor. From Good Friday at three o'clock in the afternoon (the time of day when Christ died on the cross) to Easter Sunday, everyone in the village can do whatever they want. During the two holy days sin does not exist: God is dead and can't see what is happening. Everything is accepted and allowed, without remorse. Year after year, Madeinusa, her sister Chale, and their father Don Cayo, the Mayor and local big shot, maintain this tradition without questioning it. However, everything changes with the arrival in the village of Salvador, a young geologist from Lima who will unknowingly change the girl's destiny.Written by
What the heck?! This film is simply sick and awful!
This is a totally bizarre film about a small town in rural Peru where Christianity has devolved into a strange evil cult. It seems that once a year, from Good Friday until Easter morning, the assumption is that God is dead and there is no such thing as sin or evil So, every year at this time the good people of this town act like pigs. This story revolves around a young lady oddly named "Madeinusa" and the father that can't wait to have sex with her during this three day period when there is no God and sin can run rampant.
Sounds pretty charming, huh? This film is currently available on DVD from the Film Movement Series. I have a membership and have seen many of their international films and I have to say that MADEINUSA is by far the worst film I have seen from this organization. It seemed very cruel and nihilistic--the sort of film that is truly a chore to finish watching. If you LIKE your films to be miserable and wretched, then this movie is for you. The film abounds with dead rats, bodily fluids and all around nastiness and life is just too short for this sort of mess.
