psychological point of view about a new generation that are everywhere
22 March 2016 | by HombredelfuturoSee all my reviews

...this is a very good movie; is a low budget one sporting mostly rookie actors and seasoned director and crew. All the action were shot in small apartments (danchi) in four rooms precisely; however, is not theatrical or claustrophobic, mainly due to the post production, in which they decided to break with that monotony going from one scene or shoot to other room back and forth. This also serves as part of the plot because in every movement to one of the room of the characters, some revelation about something previous, occurs.

-The fact is that there are some types of urban tribes around the world that tend to be basics in their acts and moves. -Other thing is that the almighty cell phone is what s all about in these times that we live... The males in this movie are rude, pathetic, liars, treat the women as only a thing to have sex and of course, insecure. And the women are mostly servants without an important voice. They conform to that due to there are no more horizon than have a boyfriend in their lives. At some points the despicable behavior with one of the gals makes easy to feel embarrassed due to the amount of lies and the mistreatment going on but the action and entertainment are good to still keeping watching. Manipulations are everything here; the males are dominant or try to be but if the gals decided to split up, the rolls change; after that impromptu, the anger appears; so hysterical situations build up from there.
