[shows his finger]
Manuel: What?
Gregorio: See this mark? An earwig crawled inside me there.
Manuel: Are you going to start with your bullshit?
Gregorio: No, seriously, man. An earwig crawled inside me and opened up my veins. Now I can get more blood in my brain. More light can come in, man. I think better now.

Hmm... a very bad movie!!!!
22 August 2007 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

First of all I have to say that the book is really bad (Arriaga is one of the most overrated writers in Mexico) the characters are really lame, and they have nothing appealing, so after reading this crap I wasn't expecting nothing at all... But I went to see the film anyway and let me tell you that it's worse than the book, first of all, I think Diego Luna is overrated too, I have never liked him and after watching this film I think I hate him, I don't want to see him ever again, believe me that if you see him naked and having sex with all the cast you would feel the same way too... and another thing it looks that he's no good in bed...sorry!!!! For the rest of the characters they are no good, they just lay there naked, that's it. I think this film just wanted to shock us, the way Asi del precipicio did, I don't know which one is worse, no story, no substance.......nothing!!! It's a shame that they still make this kind of films in Mexico -they look like the ficheras genre- I think that they are better writers than Arriaga and better actors than Luna - I can name a lot- Anyway don't spend your time and your money in this film, because you're going to regret it... as I did
