Directed by Alonso Ruiz Palacios
Tomás is sent to live with his brother, Sombra, after an act of mischief pushes his mother over the edge. Upon arriving, Tomás is surprised that Sombra and his roommate are on “strike” against a student revolt occurring in their college. Without the pressure of academic obligations, the three are free to pursue other interests; mainly making contact with a singer Tomás and Sombra listened to as kids. Dually nostalgic and modern, this black and white ode to French New Wave cinema is an unforgettable experience, marking the arrival of a fantastic new voice in Mexican cinema – Alonso Ruiz Palacios.
