Storyline

Flama and Moko are fourteen years old; they have been best friends since they were kids. They have everything they need to survive yet another boring Sunday: an apartment without parents, videogames, porn magazines, soft drinks and pizza delivery. The electricity company, Rita, the neighbor, Ulises, a pizza deliveryman, eleven seconds, the Real Madrid-Manchester game, some chocolate brownies and a horrible painting of ducks, all combine to break the harmony of what promised to be a placid Sunday, and reveal issues such as the parents' divorce, loneliness, the confusion between adolescent love and friendship, as well as frustration in adult life. "Temporada de Patos" is a movie that shows that, when the lights go off, we can see the stars. Written by Syndicat Francais de la Critique de Cinema

Quotes

Rita: Why do you all like blondes so much? Like Lourdes Azcona from 302... not very pretty, but she's blonde, so everyone is in love with her. And I'm not biased, really I'm not, but the girl is a retard. I don't think she's very clever, and I don't think she really cares or even realizes that she isn't clever, because you need to be clever to know if you are clever or not. I feel sorry for you: you're going to be bored to death when you realize she's not clever! Or maybe not... maybe you don't care ...

A film that actually tries something different...
16 November 2004 | by (Monterrey, México) – See all my reviews

This is a film without the snobism and pretentious approaches to Mexican culture. First, I don't see it as an art film. Anyone who's trying to disqualify this movie because is "artsy" it's way wrong.

The story begins with two boys being left alone in a apartment, it's mid-Sunday and the only things to do it's to play Halo, eat pizza and drink a gigantic Coke. Visually the films captures the very essence of the plot: it's boring, but in a good way. The camera doesn't makes any pan, or zoom..it doesn't move at all, just clean cuts between takes. Every take is almost a scene. Did i mention is shoot in glorious black and white? Yet, there's not a single moment you are not pushed (as the characters) to become entertained. And basically that's the whole point of the movie, to see how boring is just and excuse we make to resist the simplicity of life. Don't go to see this movie expecting, an extraordinary thespian ability, or and overwhelming cinematography, this is a story with soul, presented in an original and fresh way. There's people saying this film is just marketing and no product. First, this movie doesn't relies on nonsense soundtracks cd's, or posters or enormous displays to attract audience, they trust in the word of mouth system, the production company plays it for free somewhere and the rest is up to you and me. Don't try to get too philosophical with this one, just enjoy, like if you don't have anything better to do. 10/10
