Loosely based on real events, this harrowing, superbly made drama by fast-rising filmmaker Gerardo Naranjo is Mexico’s submission for Best Foreign Language Film — rightfully so

Matyas Erdely helps the director bring a measure of blood-chilling control to the whole horrific affair, elevating the entire aesthetic in the process.
-Peter Debruge, Variety
Naranjo, a graduate of the American Film Institute, has a gift for staging action that defines character. The film is a harrowing experience. It cuts deep.

Poignant et terriblement prenant.
