This Mexican drama is based on a true 17th century story of a nurse, I don't know about it, but the case says so, and it was a surprise for me, especially because it was the film debut for Simon Bross.
I've seen it today with my wife and it was raining all the week long, so we loved the raining scenes that are part of the entire movie.
There are many themes, medics, anorexia, food, psychology, sickness, death, love, childhood, marriage, adultery, sex, familiar, social, school, luxury, religion, faith, beauty, architects... among many others, then I say it is a extremely complex moving picture, where the fusion of those parts make sense and we can spend some different 90 minutes in front of the TV.
The actors are very good, and well adapted to the characters physical and psychological terms. The shooting locations aren't bad; too many interior scenes, but the rain ones (even on the windows) compensate it.
It isn't the kind of movie for everybody, it's for people who love cinema and "don't bother with a bothering" story, just to extract some lifetime lessons and others experience. As a father it teaches me how to behave if some situations happen to me, and also how to expect and predict the behavior of the others, in particular my daughter.
The main theme is the eating-disorders, but this movie it's about the life of a dozen persons, like you and me And those matters could happen to us, so we better put a stop to
