"La Teta Asustada" (2009) - Twitter review

It has been a while since I wrote a Twitter review, but "La Teta Asustada" inspired me to continue. It is my thoughts in 140+ characters , while I was watching it.

More my strange Twitter reviews!

  • In the mood for some serious drama. I picked Best Foreign Language Film nominee "La Teta Asustada" by Claudia Llosa.
  • Old lady's song shocked me so much. How people can do such horrible things?! They create the hell on Earth.
  • Such films scare me more than any horror, because they are about something that really happens.
  • The scene where they are preparing old lady's body for a funeral is very detailed. I didn't see it before in any other film. They usually show just a cemetery full of people, who gathered before a closed coffin, in American films.
  • The main character is a young girl Fausta. She suffers from a physiological disease 'The Milk of Sorrow', which is also called 'The Frightened Tit', because her pregnant mother was raped.
  • Actress Magaly Solier played her part great, she made her character very vulnerable, reserved and fearful. Sometimes her Fausta reminds me a wild animal, which was captured and doesn't know how to get away from its cage.
  • And when Fausta is miserable, she starts to sing about her feelings. This is how her mother taught her. It brings at least a few minutes of freedom for her.
  • Every time Fausta is in a crowd, there is so much tension, like she will break any minute. But she remains strong and fights her disease.
  • All minor parts are played by unknown actors or just local people, but they looks very natural, which makes this film even more realistic and down-to-earth.
  • While I'm watching this feature film, I start to think that it is a documentary about hard life of people from Peru.
  • By the way, Solier has a beautiful voice, and she is the author of the songs, which her character sings in this drama.
  • The most wicked scene was the marriage of over 50 people. A private ceremony just for two is very expensive, so they wait till there are more fiancées and make a big holiday for all of them.
  • I'm sure that Fausta's employer has an interesting life story to share, but it was left in shadows.
  • Even if all people in the world will tell you to overcome your fear, only you can do it by believing in yourself. But you still need at least one good friend, whom you can trust, who will help you and push you in the right direction.  
  • "La Teta Asustada" in an inspiring and challenging story, which shows the hard way to freedom. And without freedom we can't be happy. It deserves 7/10.
