When an American critic called this film "The best Mexican film of all time" it was a little puzzling. The "original" film was a comic-book adaptation of the book "El Tigre de Cuatro Mil Gringos", and that was supposed to be one of the most brilliant films ever made, with a huge cast of stars, a beautifully stylized plot, a brilliant director, a script that went over the top with a shocking subtext, an original score, and a body of work that is now looked back at as an influence. And that's when I finally realized what the critics meant when they said this film was "The best Mexican film of all time". The film was made in 1986 by a young director who has never made a real film, and it's a very different sort of movie. It's a film that has no great stars, the actors are unknown, and it is a strange film that offers some of the most unique scenes I have ever seen in a film. I can only speak for myself when I say I enjoyed this film quite a bit. One of my favorite scenes is the one where the mother (his daughter, it seems) accidentally finds the corpse of her son when he returns from a bar and gives a speech. It's a fantastic scene and it seems to be a little homage to the likes of the A Clockwork Orange. What makes the scene so surreal and interesting is that the mother isn't really believing in the experience. She knows she killed her son, but she doesn't care, because the world has been rude to her and her father, so she doesn't want to be blamed. And in the bar, there is a drunk who is chatting away on a single bar-line while the mother does some topless shots and the drunk has a "good thing" to tell. The mother thinks she's doing the mother's son a favor by doing what the drunk is doing, but she can't stop herself from being attracted to him, until one day when he has returned from the bar and he gives her a bottle of wine she's been drinking and she doesn't know what to do. After all the wine and being home alone, she goes out and finds a bar and a man in it who does a funny little dance and she becomes more and more attracted to him. This is one of the most memorable and most interesting scenes in the movie. The next scene is where the father is in bed with a friend, smoking a cigar while they talk. He doesn't tell them the whole story, because the more he tells, the more his friend tells him. And then there's a scene where the father is talking on the phone to his ex-wife. She says that she is going to a party where she'll have a very memorable day. What happens is that he goes and wakes her up and she starts talking to him. He tells her that he is going to be back for the party. She has an idea. She wants to have a caipirinha and she wants to drink it, because he was a good guy when she left him, but now he's a bad guy and she doesn't like him any more, and she can't live with that. Then there's the scene where he returns home from the bar, and his ex-wife shows up, and he thinks that she's still married, and she doesn't even look him in the eye when she returns. The mother finds out that his ex-wife is having an affair with the man who has a dance with her, and the ex-wife offers to use drugs and seduce him. The father (the drunk) then goes to the bar and asks the drunk if he knows what her name is. The drunk says "Teresa" and then he goes and says "Teresa Tezira". He says "Teresa Tezira", and the mother responds "Teresa Tezira", and the drunk replies "Teresa Tezira". And this is where the father notices that he is back. All this is done in one day. The mother's son returns from the bar, and he asks her if she is still married. She says "No, I'm still married, but now I have a son". This is all just so random and surreal and weird that I don't know how to explain it. What I can say is that this is definitely one of the most unique films

My father was a bordello flack and later a voodoo-master in this country. He has lived in France and Italy. He told me a story of the aftermath of the civil war in his native South Africa, where white rule was finally overthrown. He said that in South Africa he was a death sentence for being a white. He was condemned to death, and he had to watch the execution in a prison. "One of the guards was holding a pistol to my head, and the other one had the knife with which to cut my throat. He had it out with the knife for a long time. I thought the worst was over, but I could not believe it. It went on and on and on. I knew then that my father was going to die. He told me that in his native country he had to stay in a cell or be hanged. I think the prison guard was in on it." The film was the first time he had watched such a thing. It was so shocking that he thought of it only once. "I am never going to be able to forget this. When I was a kid I was terrified of death. I had no idea what was going to happen to me. I had no idea of what the next day would bring. I would get so excited about something, and then I would get frightened." That is the last time he ever mentioned it. He has watched it several times and I am glad I have seen it. I think it is great. The film was well-done. It shows how life in a flack was like. You would be afraid of the police, and the executioner was the one who would bring you to execution. The film was true to the period, and it was believable. The director was able to show how life was in South Africa during that time period. I was impressed with the acting. There were a few times when the actors made me laugh out loud. The film was not so much about the story, but the people. I liked the way the director created the atmosphere in the prison. It was a beautifully shot film, and it was enjoyable to watch.
