A one of a kind film directed by Fernando Eimbecke produced by Sundance Institute and Japanese channel NHK., 8 July 2009
Author: FilmCriticLalitRao from FIPRESCI/Cinema of the world

Let us get all our facts and views clear about this quasi Avant-Garde Mexican film.Fernando Eimbecke's second film "Lake Tahoe" is not at all an existentialist film.It is a film of absurd ideas involving numerous boisterous undertones but not in the same tradition as that of Monty Python type of films.The viewers' interest in the film is generated right from the beginning as it takes place in some obscure sleepy town in Mexico where hardly anybody could be seen on the streets.It appears as if a lost ghost town is being portrayed on the screen.Those who look for perfection in the form of innovative cinematography would not be deceived as "Lake Tahoe" features some of the most well executed, well planned camera angels which would even put late Nestor Almendros to shame.Fernando Eimbecke is a prolific young director but it is rather unfortunate that he has been compared to the great master of cinema Luis Bunuel.He is just two films old and it is easily evident that he has a golden future ahead of him but such a tempting comparison in the early part of a young person's career might turn out to be counter productive.A final word of warning.Those who are looking for a meaningful story will be highly disappointed.This is not hard to swallow as Godard uncle stated a very long time ago that films should have a beginning, a middle, and an end... but not necessarily in that order.
