  1. Graced with a shimmering visual style and sense of lyrical self-consciousness that owes a debt to French visionary Jean Cocteau, the modest film provides further evidence of Mexico's recent cinematic renaissance.

    If first-time writer-director Julián Hernández lets his knotted narrative get away from him too often, he nevertheless shows a miraculous sense of style for a 31-year-old.

    It all amounts to something less than an 80-minute Calvin Klein advertisement.
  4. It's as pretentious and wispy as its title.

    Handsome but dramatically static drama.
  6. A bleak, static mood piece about adolescent emptiness. There's little dialogue, and what there is offers the scantest information about Gerardo, who, as played by Mr. Ortuño, conveys an impenetrable blank-faced melancholy.

    Alas, the film has good intentions, but it's a failure. Just try to stay awake.
