La teta asustada

La Teta Asustada is a Peruvian movie nominated to "best foreign film" for the Oscars.

It's the story of a young woman who suffers from a strange illness: "la teta asustada" (the scared tit). This happens to the children of those raped and tortured women during the violent 80s and 90s, and the illness is transmitted throught breast milk.
The movie is full of a paused sense of magic and light, and has a rare sensitivity. It's absolutely mind-blowing (although in an implosive rather than explosive way).
Spanish TV has in online for free, but I don't know if you can access it from outside Spain.
