You have gotta see this movie!
20 September 2009 | by (México) – See all my reviews

This must be one of the best Mexican movies I have ever seen. Actors are top-notch, specially the performance of Jorge Lavat. There were many young actors and actresses that really have done a great job. I really don't know what I liked more, the movie or the music. All the songs were composed or selected perfectly to transmit the correct emotion. The official theme for the movie is Mirame_Bien performed by Sofia Maqueo. The direction was done flawlessly, incredible for a first time director. I was crying and going through the same emotions as the characters towards the end (and I sincerely almost never experience that nowadays). You have gotta see this movie!
