Fausto, Augusto and Oliverio escape together from their inconsequential urban lives for one last night to bohemian-paradise, Antigua Guatemala. They have 12 hours to blow Fausto's corrupt bribe money in one last epic party before Oliverio leaves the country the next morning. Their bulletproof plan is to find foreign girls, hook up with them, laugh, drink, dance, smoke and not get killed. But when charming playboy Fausto meets Genevieve, he discovers that it takes more than his seducing skills to actually make love work. Meanwhile inseparable friends Oliverio and Augusto find themselves falling for the same mysterious woman, Agnes. Now all five of them must fight for their friendship, future and love in that one short decadent night, which could be their last.Written by
This film represents everything that is wrong with Guatemalan culture at the moment
I was able to watch this film at one of the screenings that they had in Guatemala City long after its original release. I must say, it's really no surprise why another Guatemalan film from that same year, Ixcanul, made such an impact with audiences and this one didn't. Ixcanul was not ashamed of its Guatemalan roots like this movie is.
Guatemala is a country with a very low English level, yet so many things produced here are done in English. Who exactly do these people think is their audience? It's almost as if they thought they needed these white chicks, who are horrendous actresses, in the film to make it more palatable to audiences. The plot is generic, the acting is wooden, the writing is pretentious. "Valhalla of bohemians"? Are you kidding me? I don't even know why I'm writing this review as this movie is literally not available for viewing anywhere, so it's not like I can even deter you from watching it.
I really hope we don't make any more films like these in Guatemala. They are terrible representation. This movie is an insult to our country and the beautiful city of Antigua.
