This movie reflects that Mexico is not only piñatas and tacos, which is true. It's obvious that the documentary was realized by a non Mexican or someone that doesn't know Mexico. The discourse fails and makes to perceive Mexico like it isn't. This terrible documentary use some basic and coarse use of the film language. The score (putting the stereotypes away) is interesting because it's well mixed. This movie is awful, it's because the director doesn't really know Mexico and maybe because he isn't Mexican. By the way, the result is another stereotype, pathetic, and very unlikely.
