DEFICIT: An interesting observation of the class system in Mexico, through a 20 somethings' eyes.
8 November 2007 | by laurenasmusSee all my reviews

I think this film was a great 'fly on the wall' experience. It was like the Mexican version of 'KIDS', only not as explicit and depressing.

They basically showed what was going on in a young Mexican man's life through a party at his house. But here is the point. The lead character, Cristobal, is upper class and it focused on his interactions with a childhood friend, who is also his family's grounds-keeper/ servant. How often do we see this side of Mexican daily life? This movie evoked more sympathy for the struggle required for a Mexican in his homeland AND abroad.

The filmmakers made this movie and put Gael in the drivers seat to show a Mexico that we have never experienced in a film. It takes us from ignorance to appreciation. You see this very trendy/hot-now actor in, what is perhaps, his real environment. Although I am not sure he is that racist, I feel that putting us in his shoes for a bit really makes us take a step back and think twice before judging a huge part of our population that is really making a positive impact here in America.

The motive behind making this movie was to show what goes on in Mexico, where they come from. I am a Programmer for a Film Festival, and I have had to watch some really horrible stuff. For me, this was a breath of fresh air. More of a learning experience.

Thanks, L
