Oscar's Magic Adventure

A young boy and his sister journey across Venezuela in search of their anthropologist mother, mistakenly convinced that she's deserted them and their father, and along the way they encounter a forest shaman who teaches them to respect nature (2000). Writer-director Diana Sanchez tries to wed magical realism with zany comedy, but the two mix like oil and water: every time the story's contemplative side begins to emerge, it's trampled by unlikely plot developments, roundhouse humor, or the actors' shameless mugging. 105 min.
