This film was such a refreshing breath of air from everything that's been put out like the last 4 years or so. The story is touching, it's visually and aesthetically pleasing, and the acting is superb. The powerful scenes in the film can really grab a hold on viewers' emotions, especially from the female perspective. While the film takes place in Mexico, I think it's message is relevant to all Latin America. The symbolism that the director added in to foreshadow the events to come were amazing, done in such a subtle way that you're left thinking about it after the events they warn about take place. I've heard many say that one has to familiarize themselves with 1970's Mexico to fully understand this film. While I'm not up to date on my knowledge of this subject, I still was able to grasp the message and story the director was telling. It's the human experience for many really at the end of the day. Love this film and highly recommend it, worth every minute.
