It is very good Mexican triller
10 October 2005 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

I like the history I think it is very real , and I m a big fan of Ludwika Paleta ever since she start as a little kid in the soap opera Carrusel, I really think the photographer did a very good job , Mexico has a reputation of having some of the best photographers in the world and this film is a good probe of it , I was a little confuse of some of the plots of this film but this is one of those films that after you watch it again you notice something else, this is the very first Mexican triller I ever seen , and I really believe this movies has his values I read in the Rolling stone magazine Mexican edition that some one wrote that The director had a very good feature but he was just beginning well I say it was a very good start I really like the cast , it reflects the elite of Mexico very real , so I hope you can enjoy this movie has much I did
