aptly named for Anglophones
10 March 2007 | by (Long Island) – See all my reviews

In this tedious film, which can hardly be called a thriller, an American visits a small town in Chiapas, Mexico to search for his missing asthmatic half-sister. (Incidentally, pace the plot summary on this page, he *doesn't* go there at his mother's behest; even the trailer makes this clear.) There he learns that her disappearance is part of a rash of kidnappings of young children and wanders the town interacting with the locals in inane ways. Legend suggests that the kidnappings are the supernatural doings of a spirit. The plot twist at the film's climax is silly but can hardly be called disappointing, since by the time it comes around the viewer neither cares much about the characters nor expects anything better. The film has quite a few loose ends but I doubt anyone will puzzle about them for long.
