I saw this movie at the Latin Film Festival in Chicago last night. I found it to be entertaining the whole way through as well as realistic. The plot was spot on with one or two scenes that seemed out of place. I especially liked how it portrayed a view of traditional religious Mexico (even the bad guy feels bad of the disappearance) mixed along with the darker side of drug trafficking.
I found the characters to be believable and engaging and the camera work inventive to a point.
It was a nice surprise to see that the director Alan was in the audience. He treated us to a Q&A session in which people asked quite a few questions. He emphasized how the police chief's actions had a double meaning, which I didn't understand until the end of the movie.
Overall I loved it and would recommend it. I found it funny that a rather young Caucasian female asked of his nationality. Not all Mexican people are brown and have mustaches you know..just like not all Americans have the same accent. Anyway, great movie.
