    Don't be put off: Hernandez's exquisite romance works on an emotional, as well as intellectual, level.

    A valiant effort, no doubt. Jonas & Gerardo have a very passionate romance that just fizzles. And when it does, so does the movie. All and A valiant effort, no doubt. Jonas & Gerardo have a very passionate romance that just fizzles. And when it does, so does the movie. All and all the actors did a great job. When the dialogue is cut to minimal levels, they have so much more to do and they all seemed to pull it off. But I was annoyed by the length of the film, the plot which veered off course a few times, and the camera shots which spun around constantly. And without dialogue, we really needed to see the expressions on the characters' faces, which were hard sometimes because of too many poorly lit scenes. Overall, it was an okay story that seems to have been produced by someone who was trying too hard to prove that he isn't from Hollywood. Full Review »

    I watched this movie in it's entirety. One might see it as an achievement since this picture lasts 140 minutes. By now you probably got I watched this movie in it's entirety. One might see it as an achievement since this picture lasts 140 minutes. By now you probably got what this movie is, so I will not bore yo with details. What is important for this move that director Julien Hernandez did not just make a move but rather delivered an artful picture. One might simplify the script by saying guy met guy they have fallen in love, one guy stopped loving another one so he got revenge and turned to another one. The tragedy is actually shallow, but you shouldn't look into that way. I felt the movie. I think if you have been in similar scenario you might have better understanding and you better receive this film. Love is not a simple thing especially between two young fellows. I gave it a 9. I do wholeheartly recommend. Full Review »

Wonderful visuals of Mexico City and its sounds of music correlated with emotion, love, jealousy, loneliness, all those feelings we've all had at some point. A bit long during those silent-blacked out moments yet absorbing. Full Review »
