Decent and funny coming of age film.
22 February 2014 | by (Movie Paradise) – See all my reviews

This is a decent Mexican coming of age film about the loss of innocence and a very ambitious young man.

Perico has received a van for his birthday, but the gift he really wanted was for his girlfriend Lisa, to give him her virginity.

Given that he already prepared his van for action, he decides to start charging his friends to use the back of the van as a motel to take their girlfriends and have sexual relations.

The cast is very young and relatively unknown, but it does have Cassandra Ciangherotti, mostly known from Mexican films like "Viaje Redondo" y "Hasta el Viento tiene miedo", playing Lisa, a rich but shy girl who is unsure if she is ready to lose her virginity to her boyfriend.

The movie is slow paced and it has a lot of elements that were not necessary to the core of the story, which reduces the time given to the relationship of the main character with his girlfriend.

It may not be the best coming of age film, but it is enjoyable nevertheless.
