First screened in November 2018
Director: Alonso Ruizpalacios. Cast: Gael García Bernal, Leonardo Ortizgris, Alfredo Castro, Lisa Owen, Bernardo Velasco, Leticia Brédice, Simon Russell Beale, Ilse Salas, Maite Suarez Diez, Lynn Gilmartin. Screenplay: Manuel Alcalá and Alonso Ruizpalacios.

Twitter Capsule: I appreciate formal ideas, and overdirection can be fun, but style and script seem self-infatuated, without paying off much.

VOR:   An enticing calling-card for more disciplined Ruizpalacios films to come, and some ideas worth chewing about cultural values and historical trajectories.
