Storyline

Aurelia, a Norteña who's a high-school dropout with two sons, ditches her life as a sweatshop seamstress by stealing her boyfriend's dope, selling it, and heading for Cancún in her station wagon. At a truck stop, she's approached by Marilú, who deals in Mayan art forgeries, speaks with a Castilian accent, and wears Gucci. Marilú's also on the lamb, trying to avoid prison and escape a corrupt federal investigator. On the road, it's soon apparent they're being followed, but by whom? At least six people are in pursuit of the women. Can the women trust each other enough to work as a team; is there honor among thieves? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Smart, funny women's road movie (no, not *that* road movie)
1 May 2001 | by (Oakland, California) – See all my reviews

Ana, a smuggler of counterfeit pre-Colombian artifacts, hitches a ride with Aurelia, a single mother fleeing a dead-end maquiladora job in Ciudad Juarez (and her drug-dealing boyfriend). The two women head for the Yucatan, Aurelia's infant son stowed in the back of her truck, and are pursued all the way by...whom? Both women have plenty of reasons to worry. In a Q&A session at the San Francisco Film Festival, where "Without a Trace" was shown, director Maria Novaro acknowledged her film's resemblance to "Thelma and Louise," but added that she wanted to make a movie "in which the women don't get punished." Besides being a humorous and revealing portrait of the two women and their reluctant friendship, the film subtly weaves in commentary about U.S.-Mexico border politics and the status of indigenous Mexicans. The soundtrack is outstanding: a combination of norteno "narco-corridas," with their sly commentary on drug smuggling; and playful yet haunting ballads of Veracruz and Yucatan, full of allusions to tropical fruits and animals. The two actresses give memorably rounded performances, with support from some excellent character actors and local Maya nonprofessionals. Another witty, energetic film from the director of "Danzon."
