Well directed and acted drama
30 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The place is a small town in Mexico. I seem to remember a reference to the state of Moroles in the credits. The principal subjects are teenagers in school. The ingredients of the drama are the growing interest of boys and girls in each other, a few unsavory bullies, and a large stone that may be an archaeological find. The stone does have a role to play.

The story develops slowly at first. It's time for us to get to know the multiple characters. Eventually the pace accelerates to a dramatic crescendo.

The young actors are well cast and have good performances. The atmosphere of a small Mexican town is nicely captured. The actors do a nice job of portraying the simplicity of the town's folks, farmers and small landowners.
