Follows Chava, a 17-year-old boy who has a secret admirer, but feels more attracted to boys. When leaving his school in a rainy day, Carlos offers him a ride, and so their adventure begins.
This movie is classified as a comedy, but it is actually more of a personal drama about identity discovery.
The plot was a big surprise for me, what was going to be a predictable romantic comedy was totally different, which was its greatest success. At first I was confused because I thought it was going to be a story of bisexuality, but my great surprise was that it was directed towards homosexuality, something that Mexican films had not dealt with, in fact I do not remember any recent Mexican film that its plot focuses in a homosexual drama or romance, something that works for good in this film, since the supposed representations have been poorly planned and very problematic. In addition, the drama increases thanks to the problems of the protagonist’s family, which adds more flavor to the plot. The way of the discovery of the identity of the main character is approached, is excellently executed, it is noted that the writer was based on a real situation, since it is easy to identify with something that this character is going through. It was very pleasant to follow that character and his discovery of his sexuality, despite the drama, I managed to empathize with him most of the time.
Although sometimes it becomes annoying that after several scenes he continues to deny reality. I also liked that the story is not completely pretty, it has its dark side, just like in life, combining romance and drama. Also captivating are the performances of the entire cast, which reflect sincerity and quality work on the part of the director and the actors. But one thing I didn’t like was that sometimes it seems like there are a lot of sequences that look like music videos, just putting clips of what’s happening with music in the background. Just as I didn’t like some scenes that seemed copied from ‘Call me by your name’.
For me, it ends up being a slightly different Mexican film, due to its plot and the themes it portrays, which works correctly as a story that entertains and also brings to the table themes that had not been dealt with in Mexican films.
