Rafael Sánchez Navarro,

Written by
Focuses on character relations, with some adventure themes.
As of right now, there are no useful reviews concerning this movie on the web (in English). This is a well-acted, interesting, and believable film about members of a very dysfunctional and disconnected Mexican family interacting because of the death of the family patriarch.
Each family member is brought together initially by the lure of inheritance, but find their inner passions and goals are not always parallel to finances. I recommend this movie because it is fresh, not-Hollywood, and the character interaction is very well done, almost crackling. This is a small-budget, well-acted film that focuses on ethical dilemmas and relationships, and is not an adventure movie. 7/10 mindlessnick
