As the intense getting acquainted period wanes, they see it's worth attempting to transcend their respective flaws and demons.

Sabrás qué hacer conmigo presents some quite elevated standards for an independent production, for any production really.The theme is not very mainstream and tone sets itself apart from other commercial Mexican productions that have been a trend in the last couple years. The photography and cinematography are beautifully made and the sound effects provide depth and immersion for the public. However, in substance, the script and the story itself are far from perfect, instead i found myself thinking is this a story worth telling? does it make up for its beautiful scenery? It presents different points of views, so its interesting to see the story from both sides and then evolve into a shared space, but i wonder what it adds in the sake of storytelling. At the very end, the film becomes confusing, diffuse and weirdly timed. I think the director does have potential and could provide something really good if she worked a better story.
