Goofs

When Adrian and Felix are on their moped chasing down Lucia's captors in the white van, Adrian is clearly driving in the beginning. He drives up on the moped, picks Felix up, and speeds away to follow the white van. However, a minute later within the same chase sequence, we see Felix driving the moped instead, with Adrian sitting on the back. See more »

Heaven if it exists, must be a sexual moment.
18 September 2009 | by lastliberalSee all my reviews

Cecilia Roth (Almodovar's All About My Mother, Dark Habits) is an older woman whose husband mysteriously disappears in an airport when they are travelling to Rio. She finds he has 20 million pesos in his safe deposit box to pay ransom.

With Felix (Carlos Álvarez-Nóvoa) at her side, she manages to try and find out what happened to her husband. She also enlists the aid of young Adrian (Kuno Becker) in the adventure. The three of them are certainly worth watching.

Felix is an old leftist who is handy with a gun, and Adrian is looking for some fun with a woman almost twice his age. She definitely doesn't look bad for that age either! It would be helpful to be more versed in Mexican politics to enjoy this.
