Máncora is a 2008 Peruvian-Spanish drama film directed by Peruvian director Ricardo de Montreuil. The film premiered as an official selection at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival.


From the director of La mujer de mi hermano and the writer of Voces inocentes comes Máncora, a road-trip drama that traces the shifting emotional boundaries between three disconnected individuals.

Máncora begins with Santiago (Jason Day), a 21-year-old from Lima who is disturbed by his father's recent and unexpected suicide. Wanting to leave the chill of a grey Lima winter, Santiago decides to go to Máncora, a beach town in the north of the country where the climate is warmer. Right before his departure, Santiago receives an unexpected visit from his stepsister Ximena (Elsa Pataky), an energetic Spanish photographer and her husband Iñigo (Enrique Murciano), an art collector from New York. Their peaceful getaway is quickly disrupted by an act of boundary-crossing and betrayal, which might change their relationship forever.


In February 2014, Mancora was rated 33% on RottenTomatoes.com (based on six reviews),[1] and had a 6.7/10 score on IMDB (based on 883 ratings),[2]
