A Must-See Short Film
30 July 2012 | by hodgkinscSee all my reviews

This is a fascinating and poignant film, and particularly timely given the cartel-related violence in Juárez, Mexico. The strength of this story is in its characters. We follow a waiter who has been saving and planning to propose to his girlfriend. He has a repoir with his colleagues, from cooks to fellow waiters, that is particularly captivating and hilarious. And even funnier are his interactions with customers. The dialogue and effect of this film is reminiscent of early Tarantino, though it has an original voice. As a whole, this is a very creative, well-executed film deserving of its accolades as an honorably mentioned short at Cannes. The end of this film is sure to come as a surprise. I look forward to seeing more from these two filmmakers.
