A Claustrophobic experience which involves a Mexican middle class family into the atrocities made by wild and heartless army forces whose main objective seems to be students who do not permit the 1968's Olimpic games' to develop normally.
A woman returns to her Orthodox Jewish community that shunned her for her attraction to a female childhood friend. Once back, their passions reignite as they explore the boundaries of faith and sexuality.
I rarely have an opportunity to watch a low budget tryout from China. I just had an opportunity to watch this film in my local movie theater where there were only one more person besides me.
The film revolves around daily lives of Chinese male and female prostitutes. I am not sure is the film realistic, I never been to China nor did I see lives of prostitutes there. I have to believe the film maker about the whole idea.
Like every other low budget film this one had problem with cinematography, acting, plot and overall staying interesting. But, students have to try to make film before growing older and making more serious films. I would take this film just as an example of student experimenting. If you want to see how it looks go for it, otherwise forget it.
