Piedras Verdes Details


One woman searches for peace in a life that offers her little respite in this melodrama from Mexico. Mariana (Vanessa Bauche) has lived a life that began in chaos when her mother was killed in an accident before Mariana was born; the baby was saved, and then sold to a wealthy couple through a black-market adoption agency. As she grows to adulthood, Mariana finds herself often feuding with her adopted mother Dolores (Blanca Sanchez), who refuses to give her a share of the family's estate. In time, Mariana becomes involved with Carlos Gallardo (Juan Claudio Retes) and pursues an increasingly decadent lifestyle with him until he falls to his death from a window during an argument. In a panic, Mariana runs away, finding solace with Sebastian (Osvaldo Benavides), a stable and spiritually oriented man who allows her to join him on a pilgrimage to the rain forest. As Sebastian follows his higher power, Mariana tries to find some closure regarding her troubled childhood by searching for her long-lost biological father. Piedras Verdes was the first feature film from director Angel Flores Torres, who previously directed a number of popular music videos. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
