If I See You I Wouldn't Remember

A man returning to his Peruvian hometown for his father's funeral meets a young woman who's desperate to flee to Argentina, and the two of them hook up with an archaeologist who wants to return a mummy to its burial place to prevent a volcanic eruption. This road movie by director Miguel Barreda Delgado serves up a bleak Peru in which street robberies are common, a bank can't accept deposits because its electricity is out, and a man casually suggests to his friend that they commit a double rape. The film's drifting characters may ring true, but too much depends upon a manipulative plot studded with coincidences, and the formulaic editing and cinematography don't help. In Spanish with subtitles. 89 min.
