Storyline

Esperanza (Angelica Maria) is a young novice living in a quiet convent full of old nuns. After eating some "special" mushrooms, innocent Esperanza becomes modern and psychodelic Brenda: a subversive girl who raids a high-society party, sings subversive songs and charms young fellows. Brenda and five boys leave the party, assault an ice-cream parlor (they ask for "five of chocolate and one of strawberry") and finally kidnap a banker. In between, a Commissioner from the Surveillance International Agency follows Brendas tracks, while the girl changes personalities because of the mushroom eating. Written by Maximiliano Maza <mmaza@campus.mty.itesm.mx>

Angelica-Brenda-Esperanza-Domitila, she is so devilish...

I've seen it three times...and I can still smell the freshness of this movie's original screenplay....

What I most like of it is that you can feel the joy of making this film. Angelica Maria is brilliant, portraying a complex but superficial character and at the same time being irreverent and innocent...

The movie touches some issues that might be a little bit modern and different for this period time in Mexico, but it does it well...you know, it was 1968, the year that Mexico's youth cinema lost its innocence...
