This movie is just incredible. Good editing, perfect timing and great performances. It reflects the everlasting bourgeois outlook to possess everything, even love. The screenplay is based on a play written by Mexican playwright Jose Agustin. Everything occurs in a single location with only two characters and it might seem boring, but it's quite the opposite: rich in suspense and intrigue, the story grows and keeps the tension from the beginning to the end.
This movie has no comparison with any other recent film made in Mexico, except for the except for the simplicity of the staging, which is not noticed due to the dynamism of film editing.
