La pesadilla de Darwin
La perca del Nilo
es sólo el hilo conductor de esta desgarradora película que describe la condición humana.

Última oportunidad para los que no la vieron en el cine. ¡Tendréis si no pocas oportunidades de verla!.
Si tuviese algo de tiempo traduciría al menos esta crítica aparecida en Newsday
en Agosto del año pasado, yo no la podría haber escrito mejor...The "nightmare" depicted so graphically and appallingly here may not be directly yours. But the point made most effectively by Austrian filmmaker Hubert Sauper's film is that the perilous, shattered lives of those living in a Tanzanian fishing community are directly affected by the same "globalized" economy that could mess with you.
The story of "Darwin's Nightmare" really begins four decades ago when, in what's described as a "little scientific experiment," the Nile perch, a species of huge fish, is introduced to Tanzania's Lake Victoria. The fish are now harvested, chopped into filets and shipped to European and Japanese consumers while the Africans who catch and process them are left with rotting carcasses - and very little else.
(...) One of the online comments I've seen about "Darwin's Nightmare" praised it as a movie that "hurt" to watch. And it's accurate. Most moviegoers would probably take it as a signal to stay as far away from this as possible. Don't.
