Audience Member very good movie, describing the position of those with not very much to live on. very interesting. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Sarcastica y dura en cuanto el uso de la politica para ocultar la realidad. Fuerte la critica contra los gobiernos neoliberales que hubo (y que siguen) en el pais. El final esta para pensar, ¿podria pasar? Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Entertaining, but a little raw. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member ¿Qué dijeron? Sólo otorgo películas extranjeras, pues pito, esta película es genial y me encanta su mensaje, México está jodido, y quienes pagarán el precio al final somos nosotros, los que estamos en medio. Pocas películas tienen los huevos de satirizar y mostrar el drama mexicano tan bien ejecutado como esta Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member funny and meaningful movie Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member ¡Víva los políticos! Me reí mucho con ésta película, una clara sátira de nuestro "México querido" Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Read all reviews
