Ivan, a young boy from New York, returns with his parents to their hometown of Santiago; jealous at the idea of his mother’s pregnancy, he traverses the Chilean capital on foot, his various guides—a dumpy produce vendor, a bunch of street kids—taking him to lively corners and bars that few tourists see. The dangers Ivan faces aren’t all that scary, but director Sergio M. Castilla does sneak in a few reminders of the country’s repressive past and authoritarian present. Ultimately, however, this 1999 film is about the blessings of parental love, its message delivered didactically though with great feeling.
