A nice idea, but makes for an unpleasant viewing
9 January 2013 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

Mexican cinema is not for the faint at heart. This film in particular is well acted but filled with violence and gratuitous nudity. One of the fathers, the one who is reluctant at first, is especially convincing and the child is very endearing, but this isn't enough to warrant an evening of watching people making wrong decisions and paying a high price. But if you are really intent on watching it, I suggest playing only the scenes where the young boy is getting acquainted with his new family, which involve the two fathers, the Gardener and the maid. Those are are really lovely. The dancing towards the end to a song by Mexican singer Daniela Romo is a riot. Love her! Unfortunately that's not enough. The disc will end up on my mango tree, so as to repel bats at night.
