Crazy Credits

In the opening credits of the film, each actor is identified and accompanied by the image of a wild animal. In the case of the director (Szifrón), he chose a fox, the reason is not only because he is red haired: "The fox was an animal that my dad really liked, he always saw foxes documentaries, I think that's why I chose it..."

Time does not heal all wounds.
12 October 2014 | by (Miami) – See all my reviews

Time does not heal all wounds. One thing leads to another in six outrageous, hilarious and extreme stories of revenge. A jilted and emotionally volatile bride wreaks havoc at her wedding with an equally unstable new husband, a towing company hauls away one too many times the vehicle belonging an explosive expert, and two macho drivers – one in an Audi and the other in a pile of junk – go head to head with explosive road rage, among other delicious and fiery adventures. The utmost fantasies fulfilled, the extremes of emotions, and the riot of laughter that engulfed me from all sides, I cannot remember having such a good time watching a film. The director, who answered questions at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival, said the film is about the pleasure of losing control and giving in to unrestrained passions. Is it ever!
