Goofs

When Adrian and Felix are on their moped chasing down Lucia's captors in the white van, Adrian is clearly driving in the beginning. He drives up on the moped, picks Felix up, and speeds away to follow the white van. However, a minute later within the same chase sequence, we see Felix driving the moped instead, with Adrian sitting on the back. See more »

Awful movie
25 August 2003 | by JCEFalconiSee all my reviews

I avoided seeing this movie for a long time, simply because I was tired of being let down by bad mexican cinema. After seeing the huge marketing campaign behind it and noticing that it had the same director/writer of Sexo, Pudor Y Lagrimas, I decided to give it a shot. Big mistake, this is a mess of a movie, the plot, the dialogue, the paper thin characters. Not one of the elements that made Sexo, Pudor Y lagrimas translated, the only thing that remained were the preachy monologues and overall pretentiousness.
