  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.

    A young man wanders the streets looking for love. There you have most of the plot of Julián Hernández's masterful debut feature. But what a rich cinematic journey this is!

    It all amounts to something less than an 80-minute Calvin Klein advertisement.

    It's a victory of tone over storytelling, though perhaps a Pyrrhic one.

    All the stylistic flourishes can't hide the lack of an actual plot, character development, or point. Like Gerardo, we wait, hoping something will happen, knowing nothing will.

    Handsome but dramatically static drama.

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