In the marginal areas of Lima, a group of five teenagers (three boys and two girls) tries to survive faced with the almost nil social chances the presents has to offer them. None of them loses their ability to face all adversities and dream with a change that would alter their existence, stuck as it is in the poor neighborhood Jardines del Paraíso, where the arrival of a circus is almost an unthinkable event. Keeping away from any mere depiction of miserable conditions, Hector Galvez manages every character’s conflict to have its own very specific gravity, illumina-ting different areas of despair, hope, banality, and the tragedy of social castaways. Paraíso features a very steady hand that is able to build a sophisticated and free cinematographic realism, one that is capable of sustaining long fixed shots with a documentary-style hand-held camera. But also, the film dusts off all those formal bad habits and shortcomings of Latin American cinema, and sets a multiple but essential storytelling without ever losing focus of its social dimension or context of belonging, which is omnipresent in the fully cinematographic Peruvian landscape.
