Mexican loneliness
8 August 2009 | by stenssonSee all my reviews

The Mexican movie wonder goes on. This film is not wondrous, but anyway an interesting story about loneliness.

These types of movies have of course been made many times before, but too often you get alienated. These people are anyway easy to understand. The girl wins a vacation trip for two at her job, but has nobody to go with. Then this old schoolmate turns up. But have they really been to school together? Well, that's not important.

Big sensuality here about these two shy people who slowly, in spite of their shyness, build something up. But perhaps it sometimes is a little too uncomplicated. Anyway this way of celebrating scared people is rather unusual on the screen
