Storyline

Away from his body, the severed head of Juan Perez the Great (a low life magician of a small urban circus) recalls what led him to his own decapitation in the claws of a terrible Guillotine, like this: After a dreadful economic crisis, the Aztlan Circus (where our magician has lived so many years) begins to layoff artists from its show. To keep his place in the company, Juan Perez promises a sensational beheading act that could certainly bring the glory back to the big top. With the clock ticking and no money to build an artifact like this for his magic act, Juan Perez the Great is forced to break into a Museum to steal an original XVI Century Guillotine, that carries a deadly curse upon it...

Great and very original comedy
26 June 2008 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

While attending to the Guadalajara Film Festival I could catch up with this film made in the CCC.

It's a really really funny comedy, very well written, finely directed, finely photographed, finely made and with a very original, even innovative way of telling the story.

It's the proof that Mexican filmmakers are good, and that there is more talent than we can see, or they let us to see. I hope that this film gets proper distribution because it's a very good option for the Mexican public to see.

Congratulations for it, and i hope to see more from this director, producers and screenwriters.
