Not enough...
11 June 2005 | by (Mexico City) – See all my reviews

This movie has a very interesting structure, good acting, beautiful scenes, even the script brights for moments... but unfortunately no one of the stories involves enough as is expected. Instead we've got a lot of common 'dramatic 'till it hurts' situations as in the major part of this films.

Enhacing the fact of the very child performing, the plot is just an easy dramatic exploitation in itself with no sense of touch with the real 'cause and effect' of the parental leaving home.

Anyway this film could worth for watching the beautiful photography. Some of the scenes in the 3 stories are simply unforgettable.
