Excellent comic film
17 December 2001 | by (Saltillo, mexico) – See all my reviews

In the movie, a leader of a work union dies in an hotel chamber. It begins as a serious play, but it becomes a real mess cause negligency of police, etc. this is a movie about how politics are driven in mexico, about all the idiosincrasy of people, and how things like the death are handled in our country. You ougtha be mexican to undersand some of the situations.
