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>

Stab me with your sword!
9 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sex, drugs, and rock and roll have all been easy draws to a film. This one opens with some hot steamy sex (and drugs) between Lucia (Ana de la Reguera - Cop Out) and a bullfighter (Alejandro Nones). The next minute she is rushing to work and shooting the squeegee guys through her windshield. She did tell them not to do it! Hanna (Ingrid Martz) is having problems with her very rich husband (Ricardo Kleinbaum), a real mamma's boy. She spends a lot of time in therapy. She also likes to check out breasts more than I do, if that is possible, especially Sandra's (Anna Ciocchetti).

Carmen (Gabriela Platas), Unemployed likes to hang with a gay and a transvestite, and snort cocaine. In fact, I don't think five minutes goes by with her snorting more.

Put these three in one apartment, and you are certain to have some steamy and exciting action. Unfortunately, only one seems to end up finding happiness.

I thought the acting was great, and the story certainly kept your interest.
