In a hospital hallway, fine arts photographer Nicolas, epileptic since childhood, falls for the aloof Isabel, unaware she is visiting her suicidal mother. Their stories merge as they're suddenly engaged in a highly charged relationship but this doesn't come easy. Nicolás that lives an intense life because of his epilepsy although he lives a normal life he has to take care of himself. On the other hand, Isabel is a woman who, apparently, has her whole life figured out although her mother is not well and she has no choice but to try to save her. As the intense getting acquainted period wanes, they see it's worth attempting to transcend their respective flaws and demons. Isabel and Nicolás fall in love in spite of themselves yet commitment is not something that comes easy in this characters that are drifting away.
It was an interesting movie. My boyfriend kept asking me which country this movie was from. I kept telling him it was happening in Mexico and this was a Mexican movie. However, my boyfriend was telling me that Nicolas did not have Mexican accent. I did not recognize accents. I looked up where Pablo Derqui was from and he was Spain not Mexico.
I wonder why Nicolas kept doing things he was not supposed to do like driving and scuba diving. At the end, I thought he wanted to end his life because he could not take his hopelessness anymore to live with his epilepsy and terminal treatments his doctor suggested. However, I thought Mexico was a heavy Catholic country, so I wonder the ending meant to be suicide or something else.
It took very long to figure out what was happening at the beginning. The memory scenes were confusing, too long, and too repetitive. The whole structure of the movies could have done better, but the story itself was interesting if the theme was assisted suicide. Was the side story of Isabel's mother's suicide leading to Nicolas suicide? However, I cannot believe such a young person commit suicide just for epilepsy which millions of people are suffered from all over the world.
