This movie's release was forbidden for several years. From the time that filming started, the Mexican government wasn't very happy about it; mainly because it presented a bad image of that administration. The filmmakers fought back, and the conflict reached the press. So the movie had to be released, to avoid rumors about political censorship. See more »

Excellent movie, a must-see for every latinamerican
Herodes' Law is great and perfectly accurate parody of the corruption that characterizes most of the Latin America's states (for not saying ALL of them). Brilliantly, director Luis Estrada uses a very poor small town to develop his exaggerate parody about the behavior of Latin-American rulers. I'm sure that for us who were raised in small Latin-American towns, have notice that our governors are just a small sample of how things works in the official grounds.
Good photography, characters perfectly conceived and excellent performances makes Lay Ley de Herodes a very enjoyable, sometimes disgusting, film. Don't miss it 9/10
