Tótem Movie Review:-

Mexican actor-turned-director Lila Avilés’ new movie, The Chambermaid, is a heartfelt yet beautiful tale of sadness. The title “totem” refers to the lead character, Tona (Mateo Garcia), a talented young artist dying of cancer. His extended family and friends are throwing a big party at his house, celebrating his life and the love that surrounds him. However, Tona is absent for the first half of the film, with the family busying themselves with preparations.

The film features scenes with Tona’s sister Nuria (Montserrat Marañon), Alejandra (Marisol Gasé), Tona’s partner and Sol’s mother Lucia (Iazua Larios), and Tona’s father Roberto (Alberto Amador), a throat cancer survivor who is dismayed at the mumbo-jumbo treatments his children have welcomed. Tona’s nurse Cruz (Teresita Sánchez) is a significant figure in Tona’s life, whose wages the family haven’t paid for two weeks.

Tensions and arguments arise between the siblings, including deciding if Tona should be given more morphine, Nuria and Alejandra arguing about their drinking habits, and a Chinese-style hot-air balloon symbolically catching fire. Sol mimes to a song wearing her wig.

Despite the tragedy, nothing of real significance happens compared to Tona’s imminent death and the love they have for him. The film’s innocence, Zen acceptance atmosphere, and the enigmatic and unforthcoming figure of Tona add to its poignancy. This is clearly a personal project for Avilés, and the heartbreak feels very real.
