Slow sleepy summer day
19 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

Teen Juan (Diego Cataño) crashes the family car into a pole. He searches the quiet streets for help to fix the car. He encounters paranoid mechanic Don Heber and his dog. Then there is young mother Lucia. And there is David the young mechanic who is obsessed with kung fu.

This is extremely slow and minimalist. It is a Mexican indie. It's visually bright like a sleepy summer day. I'm fine with some long artistic shots but this has way too much of them. The movie is only an hour and a half. It feels like half of it has nothing in it. The other half has very quiet acting going on which doesn't showcase any big acting skills. It is an art film to be sure. I just never felt any excitement for this movie even when the backstory is revealed.
