A South American musical about a domestic servant makes an interesting premise which hopefully will attract audiences wishing for something different. Documentarian María Paz González tackles the tale of a Peruvian woman working as a domestic helper for a wealthy Chilean family.
She is preparing for a trip home to visit the son she left behind. She loves her son but as young people go, they seldom appreciate the love and care given by their parents. Junior seems more concerned about getting an authentic soccer jersey than reuniting with his mother. Things are not going to well with her employment either.
LINA DE LIMA is an entertaining enough film with a look at life in Peru. The film works as a whimsical musical but no one is really concerned about how the future of Lina will turn out.
