Authentic and committed, moving and stormy drama of street kids from Mexico City. Wonderful adaptation of successful play about street kids who have more trouble with corrupt cops, than with dirty and heavy work.

Storyline

Rufino (15) roams the streets of Mexico City. He tries his best to look after the youngest homeless children who survive on a diet of glue and hash and sleep in the sewers at night. Rufino earns some money doing hard and dirty work, such as moving meat around a slaughterhouse. Rufino sells a bag of cocaine for Ochoa, a corrupt cop who has Rufino's district in his power and is also the lover of Rufino's adoptive mother. He decides to use the money to flee the city with his girlfriend and her baby. Ochoa sets off after them. Just as Rufino seems able to escape, he finds out that his real father is still alive. Obsessed by this knowledge, Rufino doesn't want to leave until he has found his father. Written by Anonymous

But you can't look away.
7 April 2003 | by (Houston, TX) – See all my reviews

As a first-time reviewer, I'll do my best: This movie gently warmed my heart, then tore it out. Almost documentary in style and realism, I was lost immediately in the story. Reminiscent of "Amores Perros," and, more distantly, of "Y Tu Mama, Tambien," this is a tale of forgotten vagabonds in Mexico City, their loves and hopes and desperate acts. Although fictional, you know these lives exist, and that realization is almost too horrible to comprehend. I cried. Don't let this deter you, though. Wait until you're in a pensive mood, then watch. Hopefully you'll be a better person after. True art.
