Storyline

On the edge of a rocky desolate Mexican border town is a makeshift bar and brothel called "Las Mujeres de Troya," whose only patrons are soldiers from the other side. Doña Hecuba, the bar's proprietress, routinely overlooks the preparations for the night shift. But this evening fate intervenes in the form of Agamemnon, a powerful General from across the border, who has sent for Doña Hecuba's uncorrupted, enigmatic daughter, Cassandra. Doña Hecuba's desperate pleas are powerless against Cassandra's mysterious and fateful volition, which compels her to submit to Agamemnon. Her decision to cross the border takes us beyond the barriers of the flesh to the very limits of perception. Written by Anonymous

Una Pelicula surreal y cool!
3 April 2013 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

Who are the haters here? Don't they have nothing better to do? This movie is a complete audio-visual experience. It has excellent cinematography and production design very, very artistic. I loved how the first part is the dialog from The Trojan Women and then the second part becomes a trip to the unconscious rather surreal and strange and delicious in its revenge! I can still see some of the images in my head! Very shocking! Cassandra maybe not for everyone, but no one can deny the artistic level of production and so creatively interpreting a work so old. My respects to the director!

(I had to use translator to help with English).
