This directorial debut film for Raul Kammfer takes the continuing theme of racial and cultural conflict in Mexico and tells it in a cinematographically stunning and surrealistic way which is strongly influenced by the folk stories of indigenous people (i.e., Azteca and Maya). A nearly dialogue-free art-house piece, it was well received by critics but even they didn't recommend it for general viewing.
