According to film scholar Sarah Barrows, Claudia Llosa’s films do not portray stereotypes of the indigenous communities of Peru. Although Llosa does not portray these stereotypes, her films do not always receive a positive reaction from these communities due to the more serious depiction of them in films and the subject matters surrounding them. Llosa's films tend to focus on the harshness and difficulties these communities may face and for that reason, indigenous communities do not see it as complimentary. One of the reasons viewers critiqued her films, in particular The Milk of Sorrow was due to the fact that Llosa stated in her press conference that much of the story is fiction and that such things as "the milk of sorrow" and women adopting extreme measures for rape prevention were not real.
