Movie Info

Lina (35), like many other migrant Peruvian women in Chile, supports her own family back home by working for someone else's in Santiago. This year, preparing for her annual Christmas trip to see her teenage son, Lina realizes with annoyed surprise that he doesn't need her the way he once did. Feeling a bit emotionally displaced, she begins a different kind of journey to redefine herself as she explores her own desires and identity.

The film's secret to success is the way it shares its reflective themes with such joy and color. [Full Review in Spanish]

A great, creative, and hilarious idea... we leave the film singing, despite the pain. [Full Review in Spanish]

October 22, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Lina from Lima's strength lies in the ways González resists an impulse to solve or emphatically comment on the liminality of Lina's circumstances.

September 20, 2019 | Full Review…

Though Lina from Lima is largely a realist drama, occasionally, Lina's drab world will explode into flamboyant song and dance. These sequences are over-the-top and fun, as if out of a film much soapier than the one we're watching.

A world so glittering and so lively that it's bewitching.

This is a stunning fiction-debut for González, whose work here feels emotionally charged and relevant dancing between playful and serious and between hard and angry and soft and compelling.
