Storyline

In this deliciously kinky film that takes place in the wee hours of a Mexico City morning, long-absent Pedro returns to preside over his seriously bent family. But while Pedro is busy making love to his wife, their children Blanca, Teo and Marcos have different ideas about their father's return. Meanwhile, the neighbors are up to their own devices in a wickedly funny and highly charged erotic drama that involves a set of electric trains. This stylish film explores love at its extremes and sex at its most poetically inventive. Written by Anonymous

Weird and Sad,Love it or Hate it kind of film!
21 August 2002 | by (Monterrey N.L. México) – See all my reviews

This film is very weird and sad, it makes you laught sometimes and sometimes you just dont know what to think,Its a mixture of ideas and cliches of old cinema in Mexico, plus culture, chilango speaking (capital city way of talking) and everything you can possibly come up with thinking people is gonna think its deep while it really is STUPID! I love how this actress Helena Rojo does an amazing work in the laught-Cry Pedro Infante Style, its a great homage and she really pulls it off in a great manner, the bichir guy (don´t know his name cause hes like a Baldwin but in Mexico)is o.k in his portray of himself when he was 9 years old, his siter is Hot, his dad is Mad, his little bro is great as a matter of fact for his role, check him out as he asks his siter if she wants "bread", love sosme moments hate another ones, and whats the deal with that darn candle they all hold sometimes in the film? Check it out and if you really hate it well you just had a bad experience but if you like it....i know a dozen crappy films like it here in mexico, just check out my film comment history, bye.
