A claustrophobic thriller with some keys to understand 21st century Mexico
27 September 2016 | by drovocaSee all my reviews

This surprising film recreates the moment of rupture that gives birth to modern Mexico: the 1985 earthquake.

"7:19" has two distinct depths: on the surface, the intimate experience of the victims of the tragedy; and in a deeper layer, a portrait of the inequality that defines the country until this day.

The earthquake that devastated Mexico City in 1985 becomes an allegory: it is corruption what causes more deaths than any catastrophe; and, when corruption it's so heavy and oppressive, all citizens come to suffer the consequences, eventually.

People of Mexican heritage, and anyone with basic knowledge of modern Mexico's history, will find additional readings of the film.

A viewer without any of the context will be able to enjoy a thoughtful, well acted, claustrophobic survival thriller.
