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

You must see this film only if you are strong.
9 December 2004 | by (DF, México.) – See all my reviews

Yes. Watch this movie if you like brave films. This is maybe the best Mexican picture since Midaq Alley just because the excellent cast, the outrageous direction and a sublime soundtrack. Many people did not like 'Cronica…', they think it's very aggressive but they didn't understand that it was just a representation with hyper realism of the Mexican society but so similar to all the third world families. I hope that Benjamin Cann and Bruno Bichir (who in this movie gives another example of his greatness as an actor) soon get together again with a new film. Just Remember how Los Olvidados (Luis Buñuel) was misunderstood when released, but now we consider one of the best movies of all times. Please, prepare yourself and watch this film.
