Excellent movie... reminds of the best of Spanish and Italian dark humor
I saw this movie in Mexico City on 2/20/07. I was told it was dark humor. Actually, it is much much more. The story develops, and although there may be a little repetition in the 2nd third of the film, it is a mixture of thriller, social commentary, humor and, hidden behind the darkness, all kind of love... father figure missing the point, coming of age inside a coffin, the tough and rough world of body trading... One thing for sure. You will not be bored. The actors really do their parts superbly; the story is intriguing, the sound and images are crisp. In short, a good movie to laugh and wonder, to shudder and come out of the theater with a bittersweet feeling; mostly the giddy feeling of having watched a well-made film.
