Drama unfolds in 12 short hours of nightlife in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Lives intersect and run parallel under the cover of fateful darkness in this debut feature from filmmaker Raul Marchand-Sanchez. Three divorced ladies - one serious, one wild, one repressed - go out on the town and meet trouble and fun while they bond over their varied sad experiences. A teenage daughter reluctantly sets out to lose her virginity at her peers' coaxing. A handsome gigolo turns a $500 trick he'd rather forget and spends his night dodging fears with a friendly transvestite lounge singer who puts on a great show. A grandfatherly taxi driver works the overnight shift to supplement insurance that won't cover his beloved wife's Parkinson's medication, and winds up a hero in some regards. Capturing the mayhem is a frustrated entertainment reporter who gets her big break when she buys cigarettes at a convenience store and stops a robbery, while getting it all on tape.

A wonderfully energetic film with little story and ill-advised ending.
24 January 2002 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

A wonderfully energetic film with little story and ill-advised ending. I hope these people make lots more movies, and that they find a good writer who can tie up the loose ends without resorting to shallow tragedy. I was especially fond of Flavia Manes Rossi, but everyone was lively and interesting. A very talented cast.
