So, you finally learned how to play, man.
You know why I played so well?
What, you jacked off this morning?
No, because of this.

See this mark? An earwig crawled inside me there.
Are you going to start with your bullshit?
No, seriously, man. An earwig crawled inside me and opened up my veins. Now I can get more blood in my brain. More light can come in, man. I think better now.

did not read the book, it would be explain to me more, probably, but looking a film I have drawn absolutely other conclusions - not Gregorio was revenges Manuel, but friends Gregorio (they was betrayed Manuel, too) and own conscience. Manuel the kind, good person, but he have one defect - he should betray and he betrays for the sake of love which he searches in different people and finds, but it does not suffice him, he the addict of love - all women for him is marijuana type, only Tania - opium. I think it's a magnificent film though with it is easy pornography, and Diego Luna creates a fine image of the person lost in the feelings
