Boring what's the point?
The old maxim goes that youth is wasted on the young, but part of this naiveté is to seek truth and self discovery. María is ending her high school years and lives as a lone wolf who does not quite fit in. She decides to do something about it and leaves the safety of her home to move toward the open sea and seek adventure in the world around you. This song use of the quiet and pensive character María makes you think about the isolation we all deal with. There is something comforting to the silence and even though we may seem to not fit in where we live, we do have a place within the universe around us. This movie is a moving tale about a young woman seeking self discovery. I saw this film as part of the Atlanta Film Festival
Teenager's Journey of Self-discovery
Maria is 18 years old, an introvert and also very secretive. She does not talk much and has no friends at the school. But she doesn't say no to men when they try to take advantage of her body. She writes a journal which is mostly notes to herself, and in which she loathes herself for being a whore. On graduation day she runs away from home and goes on a long bus journey that finally takes her to La Paz Lake in northern Mexico. What she finds and does there cannot be revealed in this review. Her smile in the closing frame of the film on the shore of the lake is as beguiling as that of Mona Lisa.
Maria dominates the film in large close-ups; her expressions however give away nothing. When she is having a dialogue with her mother, the latter is out of focus. We don't get to see the face of the man who befriends and exploits her in the restaurant. The film has a slow lyrical tempo with arresting views of the Mexican landscape.
Maria's long journey has to be considered as a metaphor, a metaphor for self-discovery and emotional evolution. Is her destination planned or is it a happy accident? It is a secret that we will never know.
