PETRA

PETRA

Fate is unpredictable, unstoppable and cruel. Homer was aware of this, and history and time both serve to underpin said assertion. This also goes for Petra, the main character in the eponymous film by Jaime Rosales. After the death of her mother, she goes off in search of her unknown father, in a world that will lead her down unthinkably dreadful roads. On paper, this may sound like a runaway soap opera but it is brought under control by the director with a calm, steady and graceful hand. The human coexists harmoniously alongside the intangible, and Rosales injects a ghostly aura into what is one of his the best works. (Alfonso Rivera, Cineuropa)
