Excellent Movie
20 March 2005 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

A true master piece, I have seen this movie twice, I was lucky enough be invited to see it at a special screening in L.A. in 2002 and I saw it again once it opened here in Mexico.

This move has something that a lot of Mexican movies lack, it has honesty and sincerity in its characters.

It is superbly well written, very well directed, Imanol and Katy Jurado accomplished really great performances and the movie is rounded off by the excellent acting of Ana de la Reguera and Jaime Aymerich.

The photography is also excellent.

If you have a chance, please go see this movie, you wont regret it.
