Even the Rain ★★★★½

I did NOT fully grasp the neocolonial underpinnings of this film in my high school Spanish class !!! 

Not 5 stars bc they still managed to make the colonizers into the heroes despite the fact that that was the crux of the central critique, but yowza what a concept ! The meta-narrative ! The glaring persistence of history ! 

My #1 lingering question: how much did they pay the indigenous actors?
