Description: Another Mexican class film with the great Isela Vega, she’s my kind of lady. From a 70’s Mexican film we are always expecting something out of the normal to say the least, this one its not above those expectations, a mix of a weird story, surrealism and oedipus complex all under teh Mexican sun make this one a real winner.
The director works well with the actors, but sometimes over use a bit those long close-up shots, and does divide the film in two different parts, one more conventional with a normal story, the other a more surrealist, but still a very positive work. The main actress Isela Vega has also played in the Fear Chamber and a nice rape&revenge flick Taste of the Savage.
Not much to say, only watching it. A boy after watching his mother making love to another man becomes obsessed with her, to the point that as he grows up becomes a rival to her mother’s (a cabaret dancer called LA India) lover. That’s the problem of not having Porn back on those days, Freud was right. Calling for mummy never was so weird
