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>

When Crime earns Popularity among Widows
10 May 2009 | by (Ottawa, Canada) – See all my reviews

Only considerable for a good job of cinematography, if you consent to make a peep of the scenery, "Without A Trace(Sin dejar huella)" fails to deliver viewable coherence. The main flaw is that the subject and the happenings dis-accord together. Through trying to create the atmosphere of its origin, the Ridley Scott's Thelma&Louise, it doesn't aim any significant purpose; thus it can't make it up to the end for not remaining true to the beginning. Aurelia leaves her boyfriend, who is her only source of income, to stay with Ana-the outlaw. Although at the opening scenes where the characters were introduced, Aurelia seemed to have complete 4 scenes showing the proof of how she loves her children and how much she cares about their future. Basically, the whole movie fell to pieces scene after scene on and on, since our duo began to be chased by a mafia gang.

The links between the police, the detectives and the mafia gang were never tried to be built, leaving all the questions from the mystery unanswered. The mystery of being chased by a mafia gang erased the adventure/thriller essence out of the movie, and replaced it with a comedy that only non-sense B movies has. Director Maria Novaro has chosen a very wrong sub-genre, that ruins the whole effort. She should have worked better on editing this movie, at least. I won't even tell you how screenplay and the script is. Only consider that there is a 6 year-old boy acting pretty good, who is the only character in this film that has a mind.

In total there are 31 scenes that edited: 1 scene of crime, 2 scenes of action and 1 scene of mystery... The rest is drama(27 scenes). The subject of the crime scene is outstanding and its elements are somewhat considerable. Those 2 action scenes are nothing special; yet the scene of mystery as I explained earlier is a total mindless disappointment. Finally, the main drama scenes have dis-accord between the opening and the ending, and the ones that are on the middle is to fulfill the time and to send us to sleep with the aspects of cinematography. You'll end up with a bunch of "Why?" questions if you are a forbearing viewer.

It can be considerable only watching if you are expecting a huge company at your living room, like a friends+neighbors+colleagues meeting altogether. If you are celebrating something, put some music on, start a loud chat and watch this. Don't even try to hear or understand anything, just enjoy the sceneries, just enjoy what you see.
