Nice little movie
11 December 2002 | by (Monterrey, Mexico) – See all my reviews

I was wondering what to rent at my local video store, and this movie, with only two copies always appeared unrented between the multicopy titles all along the newest films wall.

Its a reasonably fair drama, with all its weigh on the young actor who plays the son of a unstable mother who's on the brink of losing it. I didn't expected to find the raw truths I saw in this occasion, although I must admit, they are somehow covered by a veil to smooth things off.

This almost unknown movie is a great choice if you´re looking for a rather light drama.
