"The importance the film’s narrative gives to expectancy does not derive from an idealistic mythology of Indians, which would portray them as being impenetrable and taciturn while expecting who knows what destiny, but rather waiting represents an important element in Sanjinés’ whole aesthetic project, which tries to understand and transmit the experience of Aymara time."
