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

Superb!
5 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

Some people prefer to see blue walls and some others red ones. Some people choose to see the truth, some prefer to be blind folded because the truth hurts. This is a film made with balls. You need them to break conventional modes of film making. If you consider most of Hollywood film are worth two hours of your time, then this film should not be in your plans. Is a brain and heart teaser film. Is a film about Mexicans and its painful as well as reliever. This is film revolution. This is real. Keep making films like this! Keep upsetting people, they need it. Bravo!!
