Do not believe the guy who was a child when this happened!, 27 November 2012
Author: alshwenbear1 from United States

I CAN't review this movie with ignorance; I wasn't a child when this happened. I have knowledge about what it represents, being a Mexican and seeing firsthand the political system in Mexico, and regardless of living in the USA for more than twenty years I will tell you that the political system in Mexico is the same as decades ago. This movie is a great movie, because is not just a movie! It's all that, I hated and criticized, the corruption and the lack of morals in my birth country, is that so, that seeing and predicting the past election in the USA, it was just common sense for some of us, that's how much some Mexicans understand politics,. The acting, is good, I was surprised that some of the actors would actually be able to recreate such a realistic atmosphere, and the best of it, bringing into life despicable people some of us still remember, I could rant and rant about this political, "fictional" movie, I just got to say this is just for people with a good knowledge about real life, acting and movies, if you are in that category, you won't regret watching it!
