Trivia

For the short segment of the bride and the groom in the hotel that appears in the beginning and end of the film, Ezban was extremely stubborn with the idea of shooting it at the Geneve Hotel in Mexico City, because he loved everything about it (the hallway, the lobby, the colors) and he said it all looked "like something out of a Kubrick movie". However, being this a very fancy hotel, the independent budget of the film could not afford the shooting permit. Later, Ezban and Askenazi got the idea of lying to the hotel and saying they were students shooting a short film for their class, got fake student IDs and a fake student letter, and that's how they managed to actually shoot inside the Geneve Hotel, although they were only allowed to shoot there for 4 hours and only with a 10-people crew, so it was a really rough day. They managed to shoot there with only 10 people, while the other 25 of the crew (including production assistants, hair dressers and make up department) waited on the restaurant in front of the street, hiding there, just in case they were needed.

A weird predicament, logically advanced
17 October 2015 | by ecstatictheatricsSee all my reviews

I walked out of the theater saying, "That was amazing. Just amazing." My family agreed and we talked about it that night and the next morning, figuring it out, exchanging what we remembered and admiring the creative staging and story telling. I think it was well thought out and the story told well, surprises that I then realized were logical. I thought the acting very good, especially as the actors changed extremely over time. We were still a little confused about the conclusion's explanation, but I think we understood most of the logic -- it helped to have multiple people discussing it and remembering pieces. When the old guys start talking, you need to listen.
