The Awful reality of Mexico City
23 January 2005 | by (Puerto Vallarta jal.Mexico) – See all my reviews

Even, still a lot of people leave in peace, nobody ignore this situation This is a real good film that goes from, corruption, betray,infidelity, extreme misery, nothing we do not see daily on the top news,from the tears and pain mixed with hilarious and blaspheme,from the tycoons to the ones don't even have money to buy a minimum medicine for a very sick daughter, of course you may go to this city, and don't notice a thing, but the story could be perfectly real, cruel but good film, acting from regular to good, rhitmen enough to keep audience awake, if you don't have chicken hart, must see this new Mexican movie (just in case...English is not my language)
