Storyline

Three flatmates in Mexico City face uncertainties: Lucía who has a great job as an art director for TV commercials is abusing alcohol and cocaine. She risks losing her job, going to prison for assault, and she's woefully in love with a bullfighter who may be two-timing her. Carmen, an artist without income, can be manic - snorting lots of cocaine and hanging out with a gay man and a transvestite. What's her future? Hanna contemplates divorce from Abraham, a wealthy momma's boy, and she's disoriented by feelings of attraction to Sandra, a customer at her jewelry store. Can any of these poor little rich girls sort things out in a world of excess? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Don't waste your time neither your money
16 January 2007 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

Crap, crap, crap... I saw this movie because it promised a good work, (or so was the campaign).

But what i found was a fistful of clichés, bad acting, bad timing, bad direction, bad use of a could be good plot, bad edition, etc.

The vision of the excess is very simplistic.

It pretends to be controversial putting some nudes around here, some drug abusing there, some violence there, but all that is gratuitous.

But the worse of all is its pretentiousness, it pretends to be a "not for the weak of hearth" movie, it pretends to give us a moral, but worse of all, it pretends to be a movie.

It is so bad that even the involuntary humor is bad.

It's a shame that Mexican cinema nowadays is very poor, both in quantity and quality.
