Natalia is a young Spanish woman who arrives in Mexico City, invited by Esteban, her boyfriend. However, due to work, he is absent, but his friends, Ana and Sofia, convince Natalia to travel to Valeria's house which is out of town, as a sort of bachelorette party. What starts out as an innocent comedy becomes an unusual and violent drama that questions the nature of power, the animality of our species, and the transposition of gender roles.Written by
Esteban invites Natalia to come all the way from Madrid to Mexico City just to be with him but when she gets there he's off filming in the jungle leaving her to spend time with the girl-friends from hell. Artemio Narro's "I Stay With You" is a delicious and very nasty little thriller that could go any way. One minute it's "Heathers", the next it's "Thelma and Louise" and then it's torture porn but all the while feeling a true original.
Narro directs his mostly female cast brilliantly, (you really wouldn't want to mess with these girls), making this a chiller with as much brains as brawn. An unedited single take mid-way through is worth the price of admission alone in a movie shot mostly in single takes. Totally neglected, this has cult movie written all over it. It's funny and deeply disturbing in equal measure.
