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

I think this movie is exceptionally great. I goes to show that a good film does not need of an elaborate scenery or a super script to be good or funny. The photography by Alexis Zabe was amazing; Situated in Tlatelolco, a place where many remember the killing of 68(read your history people)It shows a side of Mexico city that many people don't know. Since its stereotyped as the city with the highest crime rates in Latin America, in a way we are invited to a small fraction of the lives of 4 people. That is what I liked the most about the film, its mainly centered on day to day problems.
If you are not a native speaker, many of the jokes can be lost. other than that I recommend it fully.
