Great movie, amazing script, best young actors.
11 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

This is not a portrait of Mexico; Mexico is just a background for the story. This movie shows certain parts of contemporary Mexico but the same script could be played anywhere else. The same issues that surround the main plot affect all places and are truly universal: corruption, misunderstanding, economical gap between classes or the end of traditional jobs ad lifestyles. Marivel Verdu says in a moment "you are just like all men, you fight but what you really want is f... each other". Why women show affection in a more physical way to other women? What if this is not caused by physiologically but culturally? What if men are culturally repressed towards showing affection to other men? Why is affection, sex and friendship so hard to understand but so easy to mix in real life? Death. What about it? The whole movie goes around this and you won't notice till the end. The movie doesn't make clear statements and that makes it subtle and mature. If I'm wrong please give me the simple answer to sex, friendship, death and love. I'll be happy to consider this movie worse than I do. While we find an answer, I recommend you to watch this movie; you're surely going to enjoy it. It is funny, it's deep, it has an incredible script, and it's also visually beautiful. Hollywood believed in this director and he's now doing great films there, watch this movie and you'll see how good he is. But remember, this movie may answer a couple of questions about life but it'll ask you a thousand more.
