A happy death
5 September 2006 | by jotix100See all my reviews

Commander Martinez, a police detective, is puzzled when a lot of call girls appear dead in Mexico City. What really intrigues the experienced cop is that every one of women he discovers appears to be laughing at the moment they were killed! What could have given them such a happy death? Well, they all appear to have died from a heart attack caused by lethal orgasms!

Antonio Urrutia, the director, working with Javier Valdes, who also wrote the screen treatment, created a light sex comedy that also satires other evil things in the Mexican society, like corruption, religion, and other issues. The best thing in the film is Jesus Ochoa, who plays Martinez with gusto.

The film is mildly funny and while it could have been better, offers some fun for the casual viewer.
