The film is an exquisite piece of classical English comedy of the 20th century which transports us to amazing psychological games in which you don’t know if Elwood is just playing, pretending or really he’s insane…..
The film takes us to the Mexican countryside of the 1940s with all the atmosphere it implies: women flirting, gossiping and having fun in the town center; ranch men betting at cockfights; singing, gambling and fighting at the “cantinas” and the multiple adventures struggling with drunk-men…
The film gives us a very nice approach of Mexican imagination in criminal matters and the ‘superheroes’ that are needed to solve the clues and enigmas.
Excellent realistic scenarios which show the dangers of emptiness and selfishness in lone teens. The fact this is the first time on screen for many actors of Bejbi Blues gives us another dimension to this masterpiece.
