Who is Mariana? In Chris Gude’s film, more than a character, Mariana is a desire to reach, the matter of a dream territory. Two smugglers flee through the desert, between Colombia and Venezuela, while they hear a speech about men in already past times. The filmmaker establishes a symbolic comparison with the name of their country, as the fruit of an interrupted collective dream, recalled in a radio address recovering Simón Bolívar’s liberator imaginary. As in his previous film, Mambo Cool, Gude appeals to ghostly archetypes, characters and settings, to evoke a Colombia of political abstractions, where the bolero has its place.
