Santitos/Little Saints (1999, Mexico) review
The premise is simple: a mother has doubts about her only daughter’s death and hasty funeral. Instead, she strongly suspects a case of conspiracy and human trafficking. A deeply religious person, she appeals to her little saints, her santitos, and the lines between reality and delusion quickly begin to blur. The search for her daughter has some elements of a road movie, but also elements of a coming-of-age story.
