A great drama-thriller about Mexico
22 April 2010 | by interlingua_usaSee all my reviews

Like another reviewer on here, I saw this movie at the Chicago Latino Film Fest and also liked it very much. The movie is set in Mexico City and Tijuana and deals with some of the frustrations in the lives of the poor and lower middle class. It starts off good and gets steadily better throughout the movie.

And as with an earlier reviewer, at my showing the director also appeared and someone asked about his nationality. The person who asked was Mexican and she didn't believe the director himself was from Mexico. So it's not just "Caucasians" or "females" that sometimes assume most Mexicans are brown.
