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>

Maybe a rate of 3 is too much...
13 May 2007 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

Super sexy Ana de la Reguera can't save this movie from sinking. The story is too lame and personal that maybe the director/writer wrote it when she was 14. Te first 5 mins of the movie are the best example of what is coming next: sex, drugs, bad acting, terrible dialog and lots of plot holes and contradictions.

There was strong publicity on this movie that was sure to pull a lot of people into theaters, most of them guys looking to get a peek of Ana's nude scene.

Unfortunately Mexico creates 20 bad filmmakers for every good one. Not too mention the hundreds who don't have the connections, friends or relatives to get the money for they movie, or a family fortune...

I can't believe how Mexican studios still throw away money like that.
