      Lucero Calderón Excelsior (MX) A movie that works as a reflection of themes that are so human and mundane, everyone can identify with it. [Full review in Spanish] Oct 22, 2015 Full Review Ernesto Diezmartinez Cine Vértigo A melodrama fueled by two awesome leading ladys that ends up being too irregular with all the twists and turns it presents. [Full review in Spanish] Oct 20, 2015 Full Review Lucero Solórzano Excelsior (MX) This is a good film debut for Beatriz Sanchis, and even though it has its flaws, the movie works and is really enjoyable. [Full review in Spanish] Oct 19, 2015 Full Review Jorge Carrión En Filme A story that revolves around a woman who has some unresolved issues with the past told in an elegant and magical way. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 3/5 Oct 19, 2015 Full Review Lucía Ros Serra Espinof An interesting and atractive story that incorporates the spirit of the 80's and the magical realism of Latinamerican literature. [Full review in Spanish] Oct 19, 2015 Full Review Erick Estrada Cinegarage Perhaps too much pop and so little synth in a movie that could be inspiring but falls short.

      Audience Member Lupe (Elena Anaya) is an agoraphobic Spanish/Mexican former rocker of the band Groenlandia, whose first album was a huge hit. Her days of being wild are long behind her, yet she's trapped by her memories of that intense period of her youth and the death of her brother and band member Diego (Nahuel Pérez Biscayart). She lives wholly dependent on her mother Paquita (Angélica Aragón) and has a teenage son, Pancho (Christian Bernal), who hates her. Her agoraphobia won't even let her leave the house to buy the ingredients she needs for cooking. Luckily her mother, a superstitious Mexican woman with a heart of gold, is there to do the shopping, deal with her frequent crises and do what matters most: be a mother to Pancho. But Paquita is running out of time. She just found out that she's going to die and she has only one final goal: to prepare her family for life without her. Paquita knows that Lupe needs to get rid of her guilt before she dies, as she was the one who drove the car that killed Diego, by reuniting the siblings one last time. Following a celebration of the Day of the Dead, Diego reappears from the dead and enters Lupe´s home and takes up residence in the bathroom. Most of the time, Lupe is disconnected from life, so it's not hard for her to accept that there's a ghost in her life and eventually they start to make amends and reconcile for what happend 15 years earlier... "They Are All Dead" (Todos Estan Muertos) puts the light on reconciliation, numbing guilt and deep sadness that just won´t pass not matter how long time you have had to process it. The talented and oh so beautiful Elena Anaya´s Lupe is lost within and can barely take care of herself nor her son Pancho while her mother has to take care of them both. Magic and realism intertwines and the emotional performance from Elena Anaya stands out. The film is partly set in the time when Madrid's movida, the cultural movement which spawned Almodovar, exploded and that is handled in great videoclips with Lupe and Diego´s band Groenlandia performing their music. I reckon there´s an issue with character depth and emotional structure as it doesn´t fully explore that and finds a platform that satisfies. The narrative is a bit jumpy and you never get a grip of Pancho as he becomes more of a backdrop in the storyline. This spanish dark comedy is a bit flawed, but I still enjoyed it. Elena Anaya gives us a great performance as Lupe, you feel an urge to hear more from Groenlandia and I loved the opening sequence of the movie.
