Amid a crumbling world of decadence in the face of growing debts, vain matriarch Carola and her brood of privileged children fight to keep up all-important appearances in Juan Carlos Valdivia’s stunning portrait of a family in decline. With the indigenous Aymara servants looking on as Carola refuses to face the inevitable, spectacular production design and the Bolivian city of La Paz provide a glorious backdrop for Valdivia’s timely commentary on a changing society and a class in denial.
