Estrella is 10 years old and has 3 wishes: The first one, that her missing mother comes back and it happens. Her mother returns but she is dead and follows Estrella everywhere. Petrified, Estrella tries to escape from her by joining a gang orphaned by violence. Soon she realizes that dead are never left behind and when you are in the middle of brutality and violence, wishes never come true the way you want them to be.Written by
A very beautiful film. The next director with legendary status
This is a very beautiful film. A story with alot of elements that happen in Mexico everyday. Sad and disturbing as well. But can't take your eyes off the screen. Theae kids play their roles VERY WELL. The director is also working on a film with Guillermo del Toro. Which will be the next big thing to come out of Mexico. I am a huge fan of foreign films. Such as classic European horror films and poliziotteschi films from Italy and giallo films...Spanish horror movies...Paul naschy werewolf films etc. But if your a fan of foreign language films. This is definitely worth a watch. The best films to ever hit the screen come from south of the border...Mexico...don't sleep on Mexican cinema. Today's films and even the classic films of Mexico...juan Lopez moctezuma is a director that influenced alot of filmmakers in Mexico.
