Great photography!!
12 August 2002 | by focoSee all my reviews

The photographer work is remarkable as his photography adds a unique atmosphere to the film. Art department did a good job recreating the 80´s in Mexico city. a well told story about the relationship of a former artist and a child,although could use a little more insight on this subject.
