Dir Alonso Ruizpalacios
With Tenoch Huerta, Sebastián Aguirre, Ilse Salas
In Ruizpalacios’ acclaimed debut, a single mother who feels unable to cope with her young son sends him to stay with his brother, a student in Mexico city. A witty, insightful and pleasingly low-key study of character, place and the minutiae of everyday life.
