like most of the good Mexican movies lately
11 August 2016 | by notforthreesSee all my reviews

Las elegidas (The chosen ones) is not easy to watch, is not that it has a lot of violence or nudity, is just the kind of story we would prefer not to see, not even think there is people suffering such problems (think Heli, 2013).

It is very well done and avoids falling in most of the clichés of the genre (not all, though). Grabbing a bunch of non-actors has worked way better than other films, I think. Special mention deserve the father and brother of the male protagonist, I think they were picked extremely well, both have at the same time a certain charm that is well contrasted with the terrible acts they commit.
