"High in the breathtaking, majestic Andes of Peru, silent but deadly traces of mercury -- remnants of long-ago silver mining -- bring illness and death to a local village. Seeking retribution, the villagers mistakenly attribute the outbreak to Western doctors who work in the mountains. Two women -- the fiance of a villager killed in the accident and the wife of a doctor murdered in the riot -- are brought together in this haunting yet ravishingly beautiful film about our divided yet inextricably intertwined world."--Container.

This is not just a movie with a valid story ... it is a work of art. From the brilliant music to the stark symbolism it drew upon all my senses.

the main complaint i'd have for most foreign films is their molasses like pacing, cut out about 30 minutes of still shots and then you might have a workable movie.
