Summary, etc.:
La Paźs Zona Sur neighborhood is Boliviás most exclusive enclave and has housed the countrýs affluent elite for generations. In an adobe-tile-roofed castle, a statuesque matriarch reigns over her spoiled offspring and indigenous servants. But social change, however unwelcome, is on its way. The scent of impending decline permeates the air, and the threat of shifting aristocratic privilege heralds a new era in a seemingly interminable class war.. Boliviás official entry for the Academy Awards, this searing portrait of a patrician family in flux exposes the bubble of decadence in which they exist.. Official Selection at the Berlin International Film Festival. Winner of a Directing Award, Screenwriting Award, and the Grand Jury Prize in the World Cinema - Dramatic competition at the Sundance Film Festival.. ́This magnificent production, a true work of art, could be interpreted as the epistle of a class in retirement, from which only nostalgia remains, between the pitiful melodies of an aristocratic piano and the whispers of a boy who one day wanted to fly.́ ́ Sergio Zapata, Fotogenia
