Trivia

The place shown in the movie could be Guerrero Negro. Guerrero Negro was founded in 1957 when Daniel Ludwig built a salt works there to supply the demand of salt in the western United States. The salt mine was established around the Ojo de Liebre coastal lagoon to take advantage of its strong salinity. This company, called Exportadora de Sal, S.A., of C.V. ("Salt Exporters, Inc."), eventually became the greatest salt mine in the world, with a production of seven million tons of salt per year, exported to the main centers of consumption in the Pacific basin, especially Japan, Korea, the United States, Canada, Taiwan and New Zealand.

Too conniving
4 September 2012 | by (Minneapolis, USA) – See all my reviews

Slow, small town, Mexico. Everything revolves around the salt mine. Mounds of white rock and powder, seep into the very soul of the people. The young women disappear and some of the bodies are finally found. Edgy, rough big town policeman is sent to solve the case. This is a different kind of Mexican movie. Slow moving, creepy, with horror undertones. Eccentric characters all over the place... and that is the trouble. Everything seems to be a little slanted, a bit shafted to the side, albeit intensionally in a manipulative way. Like the director wasn't sure enough in the story, so he felt the urge to connive and twist little too far to be believable. Still, well worth watching.
