Of course this movie exagerates that but I think having been born in Mexico City, this movie reflects that very well. Everything happens in one single period of 24 hours. The acting is great and the talking hard to follow in Spanish to everybody but people from Mexico City. I can hardly wait till it comes in DVD. Highly recommended.
