Storyline

After being falsely accused of a murder, Marcos (Alcazar) runs away to the small and quiet town of Cuevano, where he has relatives. There he finds that the family matters are more complicated than his, and that the complexities of small-town life are richer (and more dangerous) than his apparently sophisticated life in the big city.

A funny Mexican story, closer to contemporary reality than "Walk in the clouds" or "Like water for chocolate"
18 June 2001 | by (Guadalajara, Jal., México) – See all my reviews

I expect much from Sneider now he's filming "Arrancame la vida". This because "Two crimes" (correct translation of the movie's name) was delicious.

This novel written by the Mexican Jorge Ibargüengoitia and published in 1979 (or before), is a great dark comedy.

Funny and unpredictable, delightful and well acted, the movie presents characters real and familiar to any Mexican. Sneider understands and respect the story, all the twists, the humor, the rhythm and dialogs of the author. By doing so, he succeeds in keeping the viewer's interest through all the movie. Go see it!

Don't pay any attention to the horrible title in English: "Kissing cousins"
