  6. No sé si cortarme las venas o dejármelas largas

    Manolo Caro / Comedy Showcase / Mexico / 2013 / Comedy Showcase / 98 mins
    How well do we really know our neighbors? Two very different couples living in the same apartment building find out just how little when a handsome and athletic new renter moves onto their floor and two gunshots ring out. With a great cast that includes Cecilia Suárez, José María Yazpik, Marimar Vega, and Zuria Vega, this crazy dramedy plays with our expectations while maneuvering the treacherous territory of an urban living space overrun with manic characters.
