AKA: Small Country
Set in the political turmoil of the early 70s and told from the point of view of two lifelong friends whose families ended up on opposite sides of the conflict. Rosana is the privileged 11-year-old daughter of the police chief of Montevideo and a sophisticated mother who objects to living in a working class neighborhood. Xavi and his family live next door. His father, a Spanish immigrant named Manuel, is a humble shoemaker. Both men are decent people and dedicated to their families, but political events compel them to make wrenching choices. As young Rosana and Xavi start to enjoy the beginnings of puppy love, their world is suddenly split apart in a way that will haunt them throughout their lives.

A quiet, sober, occasionally clunky piece thematically similar to Infancia Clandestina and Machuca but presenting its own unique and interesting take on the subject matter. The film is quite frank, though not at all explicit, about the erotic nature of the children's attachment to one another.My Movie Rating: 8 / 10
