Class warfare in Mexico City
12 September 2019 | by chong_anSee all my reviews

A group of workers are building a luxury mansion in Mexico City. The owner pays them late, falsifies documents to avoid compensating for an accident, and the workers' Union is powerless. Some take a measure of revenge by slipping in at night, and using facilities they built but would never otherwise enjoy. When the owner dies with no heirs, they occupy the almost-finished house, trying to claim ownership via squatters' rights.

I saw it at the Toronto International Film Festival, where the director said the 2 basic elements of the plot are known occurrences in Mexico - the rich building big houses, and the poor squatting in unoccupied ones. The action revolves around one main character, where the secondary characters are mostly played by actual construction workers. There are various actions that are hinted at, or occur off-screen, and that director's choice eventually got me irritated. But if you like contemporary social commentary, this is your film.
