This latest delivery from "La Charanga Films" (sic), a Mexican PR and advertising firm, spells out everything that's wrong with having a group of privileged oligarchs come up with a a half-baked piece of entertainment for children.
You really have to wonder how such a vapid story made it past pre production. The premise is not a terrible one yet I can see most 11 year olds come up with a better story.
It tries to emulate Kafka by having a kid wake up one day with a mustache. Take it from there...
The photography is not terrible but post production managed to push the saturation to 12 to make it look like a Saturday morning cartoon.
The acting is abysmal, from the innocent Ulises as well as his uncle and the club of friends that leave an uncertain aftertaste not far from child molestation. This film failed for a good reason, when Mexican cinema is going through one of its finest moments.
