Storyline

From Mexican auteur Manolo Caro "THE HOUSE OF FLOWERS" comes PERFECT STRANGERS "PERFECTOS DESCONOCIDOS", a story about a seemingly simple dinner. When a group of best friends get together during a lunar eclipse to share an intimate dinner in the tasteful house of Eva "Cecilia Suarez" and Antonio "Bruno Bichir", they suspect it's just another typical night until the hostess proposes a game. All guests must lay their cell phones on the table and read aloud all incoming messages and answer all incoming phone calls in front of the entire group. What begins as a provocative party game quickly becomes a wild ride full of twists and "textual tension" in this comedy about the secrets we all carry in our pockets.

User Reviews

 
As good as the other three versions, but it adds nothing new!
21 January 2019 | by billymurbillSee all my reviews

The acting and everything was good. But after having seen the Italian, French, and Spanish versions, I was hoping this movie would bring something new to the table. In the end it was nothing more than the same old thing but this time with Mexican actors. The only thing about this movie worth seeing is Cecilia Suárez
