silly Mexico City fun
2 August 2003 | by (Pennsylvania, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie is great for foreigners who have lived in Mexico City. Aside from the interesting plot about people lying to each other for a good impression, I liked all the little glimpses of Mexico City life. Of course, they were overdone, but that added a lot of comic relief.

I suppose a lot of Americans would be bored by this film. As for me, after getting stuck in Insurgentes traffic jams and having firebreathers and food vendors come up to my window, the comic relief was reason enough for me to watch Vivir Mata.
