unique story and great visuals
1 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

the story is so excellent... i really haven't come across much else like it. at once funny and dramatic, oddly compelling. what starts out as an ordinary day at the office (doing a job you'd rather not have) turns into near-disaster. i love the kind of movies that twist and turn and build and build into ever more fantastic conclusions.

also an interesting view on Mexican society, whether you've been there or not.

the actors were believable and rich, not the kind you either love or hate, they had many shades in between. the film will delight you visually with its setting and details. go see it! the only reason i don't give it a 10 is i was confused at a few points, though that may be because i was trying to listen to the Spanish without reading all the subtitles, and i'm not a fluent speaker.
