Low life goings on in an impoverished Mexico City
9 January 2017 | by t-dooley-69-386916See all my reviews

The plot is that two skate boarding friends sell their blood for cash to live on the streets of Mexico. They also develop a taste for each other which adds a sexual element to the goings on.

Then the big deal comes along – but there is a catch it is with some gangsta boys but what they are offering is both too good to turn down and too good to be true.

To say any more runs the old plot spoiler risk. Now this has been panned in some sections for being a bit of a mess in that some ends are left very untied and that the plot jumps around a bit. Now for me that added to the authenticity and a better feeling of 'Cinema verite' about the whole thing. Some of the actors were sourced from Facebook but I did not see that as a problem but moreover added to the variety of the players as in the real World.

The main lead roles were more than competent and the filming was both realistic and almost casual as if the scenes being played out were or are an everyday occurrence. There is not much in the bedroom department but some nudity at the start. The real point here is the story itself and just because it was not neatly packaged replete with epilogue does not, in my opinion, detract from what is a very note worthy film.
