Storyline

Aurelia, a Norteña who's a high-school dropout with two sons, ditches her life as a sweatshop seamstress by stealing her boyfriend's dope, selling it, and heading for Cancún in her station wagon. At a truck stop, she's approached by Marilú, who deals in Mayan art forgeries, speaks with a Castilian accent, and wears Gucci. Marilú's also on the lamb, trying to avoid prison and escape a corrupt federal investigator. On the road, it's soon apparent they're being followed, but by whom? At least six people are in pursuit of the women. Can the women trust each other enough to work as a team; is there honor among thieves? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Has a Definite "Thelma y Luisa: Road Trip en MEJICO!" Feel To It!
1 August 2016 | by KissEnglishPastoSee all my reviews

........................................................from Pasto,Colombia...Via: L.A. CA., CALI, COLOMBIA....and ORLANDO, FL

What a pleasant surprise this little known Mexican film was! There were specific reasons I thoroughly enjoyed it. First, it was a true delight to watch the acting skills of Aitana Sanchez-Gijon and Tiare Scanda. They played off one another with uncanny dexterity. Writer/Director Maria Novaro must have established a great rapport with both of them, really managing to get their collective creative juices flowing.

"Huella" also highlights many regional and cultural differences, both within Mexico and particularly, between its two protagonists; one a working-class Mexican high school dropout, on the run from both her jealous Ex and her current fallen-in-with-the-wrong crowd boyfriend; and the other, representing Spain (but Mexican by birth), a very Euro-style, upper-middle class college graduate who majored in Mayan art but who now spends her time border-hopping and duping clueless American art-collectors with her spot on expertly-engineered and crafted Mayan forgeries.

Seeing as how I have driven through Mexico twice from Nogales to Tapachula, "Huella" brought back fond memories! If you'd like a firsthand look at some of the topographical, cultural and even musical differences found in diverse areas of the REAL Mexico, "Huella" is the ticket! Recommended for ALL of the following groups of viewers:

A) For everyone who has traveled or lived in any Hispanic country.

B) To ALL Spanish-speakers or those who are fluent.

C) To those who like travel or like road movies....And...

D) Especially, to those who appreciate films where women are the central focus, behind the wheel, so to speak, ....and men take ....a back seat!

8*...ENJOY/DISFRUTELA!!!
