That old Mexico we don´t want anymore!
4 September 2000 | by See all my reviews

Another mexican movie that shows the Mexico we don´t want anymore. Without any doubt it is one of the best mexican movies ever made. Francisco Athie directs this craft in which Lumi Cavazos -´Como Agua Para Chocolate´- performs a character tender and strong at the same time. A political assassination plot is told here and investigated by a young male looser journalist.

Magnificent use and manage of the so called ´emotional movie´ since it has a scene at the end of it that lasts about 5 min. set in a storm.
