I am not going to review Gerardo Naranjo's film as it has been done elsewhere. However, I think that it wavered, particularly at the beginning, from being a story as narrated by several protagonist or a straight told story. The device of its telling by a diary written by the girl who is already dead as the story is told is quite interesting. The actors, particularly the young ones, play in a restrained manner their roles, resulting in a very credible portrait of a couple of 15 years old misfit, very much in the manner of Malick's "Badlands", but pointing out at the corruption of Mexican society rather than the wide open badlands. The camera follows the actors with a leitmotiv associated with the characters.
