Carmen and Alfredo have a wonderful life in Ciudad Satélite, a middle-class suburban area in Naucalpan, State of Mexico, and one of México City's suburbs. Their relationship is stable, they get along great and they have family and friends close by. A great opportunity for professional advancement requires them to move into the noisy and stressful Federal District (México City proper). Relationships there are cold and calculating as a result of the stress and competition typical of major cities and this change has a major impact on the couple. Written by Jojo Jones

Finally something not pretentious in Mexican movies
18 June 2015 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

One big problem about the "new" Mexican movies, is that it is very pretentious and pretends to show a reality that is non existent, with characters completely out of the ordinary and dialogs that no one would ever believe. This part is hard to recognize if you are not familiar with the daily chaotic life of Mexico, specially Mexico City. Although it is a very cosmopolitan place, it is not full of people looking like movie stars, the landscapes are far from clean and quiet, and it is a place of contrasts. And for the first time, I can see this perfectly pictured in a movie. It has characters that could be your neighbors (perfectly ordinary), with average jobs, trying to achieve a nice quiet life together, aspiring always for something bigger and better, surrounded by all kinds of people. And also this time is as well the first time the psychology of the characters is very well achieved, with their frustrations, dreams, desires and insecurities. If you are familiar with the culture of such a surrealistic country, you will be able to notice that the chaos on the tables, the lack of aesthetics in the decorations, the kind of mediocre jobs, and many other little details, reflect perfectly the struggle each couple has to deal with in the middle of a chaotic place, where you actually feel alone even if surrounded by millions of persons, and how your dream can be broken in the blink of an eye. However, at the end the story becomes cute, and although not everyone would enjoy the kind of comedy it has because it is very local, and in parts it is slow, I would recommend it if you wanna have a nice time and appreciate the little things that you have in front of you that actually make you happy without you even noticing it anymore. Like the company of the one you love.
