Between love and revolution
Based on a book of the same name, this movie depicts the life of a young writer during the 60's in Ecuador. He gets lost between the characters of the love story he is writing and his real life as a militant of a leftist movement.
This is maybe one of the only two movies from Ecuador which I would recommend to watch (the other one is "Ratas, Ratones, y Rateros"). The photography along with the story are excellent and the performances are acceptable. Unfortunately, as most of the Ecuadorian movies, it can been really (and sometimes just) appreciated for somebody from Ecuador. Apart from the fact that a previous read of the book may be required in order to fully understand the plot of the movie.
"Entre Marx y una mujer desnuda" is a movie worthy to watch specially if you want to watch a good Ecuadorian movie.

Awful movie, If you love animals just don't watch it
I was forced to watch this movie while I was traveling by bus between two distant cities in South America. This is a story of two tigers who are separated in their attempt to scape from their hunters. Their suffering is well represented and makes us wonder how they made in order to get those excellent animal performances and realistic cryings.
This movie also depicts colonization, irrational exploitation of natural resources, the domain of man over nature, haunting (for pleasure), animals traffic, historic objects traffic, everything presented as natural. But what in my opinion was the worst of all this is the portrayal of animals as threads for men, when is actually the men who invaded their territories.
The excuse for the mistreatment of animals shown at the beginning of the movie is the "happy ending". If you love animals just don't watch it.
