It is good depending the appreciation
11 October 2004 | by (Morelia, Mexico) – See all my reviews

This history is common in the Mexican films, even so I was stuck to the seat all the moment, because I'm Mexican I feel what the protagonist feels in the film, for that reason I mention that this film is good depending on the appreciation of each spectator, if you never feel injustice at your country maybe don't understand this movie. This is not an art work, is not the best Mexican film but helps us to reveal the injustice that can be given in this country and that makes think us. This films was in competition at The Morelia International Film Festival but not win, also has pretty attended. I recommend this movie but I'm sure that no everybody will like it.
