2009. Mexico. Written and directed by Alejandro Gerber Bicecci. With Roberto Mares, Francisco Godínez, Aldo Estuardo. José reluctantly works at his father’s ice factory in a poor urban district; Felipe works at an Internet café, where he cultivates a voyeuristic crush on a customer; and Andrés spends his free time with a group devoted to a pre-Columbian golden age. Friends since boyhood, the three young men are linked by a defining incident that connects the destinies of their entire neighborhood. Bicecci’s enthralling mix of history, memory, guilt, and atonement turns a tangled neighborhood tale into a sly parable about modern Mexico itself. In Spanish; English subtitles. 111 min.
