Nadie sabrá nunca

Panorama | Contemporary World Cinema

Comforting fictions are what make life tolerable for Lucia (Adriana Paz) and her son Braulio (Luciano Marti). It’s rural Mexico in the 1970s; to escape the daily drudgery of farm life and husband Rigoberto’s (Jorge A. Jiménez) less than enlightened ways, Lucia immerses both herself and Braulio in radionovelas and movies, hoping to open the young lad’s mind to possibilities of a better life. For herself, she sees little hope: Rigoberto refuses to acquiesce to her desire to move to the city. However, one night, when Rigoberto is absent, mother and son let a stranger into their home. The man, who carries within him all the characteristics of their beloved heroes from radio and film, manages to transform their constrained world into a magical one, if only for a few precious moments…

To say more would spoil this beautiful, melancholy work from first-time director Jesús Torres Torres. While critiquing macho culture, his film both understands the conditions that have made Rigoberto what he is and suggests that hope for Lucia—and especially for Braulio—is still a possibility. Aided by a terrific turn from up-and-coming star Adriana Paz (remember her in Hilda from VIFF 16?) as Lucia, Torres Torres has made a film of wonder and tragedy—wistful, haunting and lovely to look at.
