Not that great.
6 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First of all the production values on the DVD are not very good; the sound quality is especially horrible. The plot is basically the same old "tough lives of the youth" story which has been done a thousand times over the past few years in Latin American cinema over the past few years. The one bright spot in the film is Dolores Beristain's performance as the alcoholic and mentally ill aunt Chenta. Her performance is very realistic, but too brief. Also, her story is not supported very well by the plot and stops making sense towards the end of the movie, along with several other aspects of the plot. Overall, this movie has been done before and been done far better.
