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>

Very Poorly Done
5 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To the reviewer who said this was an accurate depiction of drug and alcohol addiction - WRONG! First of all, one character quits cocaine and alcohol cold turkey and has NO withdrawal symptoms. In real life, she'd have severe diarrhea, sweats, shaking, migraines, weight gain, etc. Instead, she just goes on her merry way and everyone tells her how great she looks "Have you lost weight?" they ask. When she shoots a man, her father "arranges" everything and she does not get in trouble for it. This is so far from reality it's absurd! Furthermore, the acting is terrible, the writing awful, the timing bad, the character development shallow . . .even the green screen effects were poorly done. I'd say Teresa has a long way to go, if she can even get funding for another film!
