"Mother" stands out on the front of her black t-shirt, "Fucker" on the back. And as angrily as these words sound when combined into a curse, is how Antonia behaves. Because she is pregnant, and Victor, who slept with her, is getting married in a few hours to Blanca. Incensed, and looking like a black angel of revenge, she searches out her rival, already in her white wedding robes, to confront her with this fact. Her neighbour Gabriel, a film student, has agreed to record everything on video, to soothe Antonia's fury. When Blanca learns, in front of the camera, that her future husband has betrayed her well and proper, she hired Gabriel at short notice as a cameraman for a wedding video of a quite different kind. Blanca finds her husband having a shower, drives him out into the street and exposes this Latin lover, not just verbally.

Apparently this one is really a matter of love it or hate it, because I know some other people in my theater weren't able to make it through. However, I found it really funny and well-made. The entire film, which reputedly cost under $100 to make, is in one long shot. It captures a cameraman, sought out by a neighbor to capture the face of a woman about to be married when she finds out that her fiancé has been sleeping with someone else. Then the man is brought with the fiancee to find the fiancé, some friends for consolation, and an old lover. There are some very funny moments, made funnier because of the forced voyeurism of the filmer. It's surprisingly well-made, evenly paced, and well-put-together, for what obviously is a film based on a simple idea and executed quickly. I recommend it.
