From the producers of Amores Perros comes the humor-laced action thriller Nicotina. Lolo (Diego Luna) is a computer hacker who teams up with two amateur criminals in a deal with a Russian mobster. Diamonds will be exchanged for computer access to certain Swiss bank accounts. Although dangerous, the job is fairly simple for tech-savvy Lolo. What nobody plans on is Lolo's distractive obsession with a woman...at a most inconvenient time.

It is a decent fit. The basic plot is that a Mexican criminal gang is trading computer bank codes for diamonds with a Russian gang. I do not think I am spoiling anything by pointing out that not everything goes as planned. The two criminal gangs end up involving the computer geek that downloaded the data. His next door neighbor, a sexy and promiscuous cellist, played by Marta Belaustegui; her conductor, a potential sugar daddy: a plant toting upstairs neighbor: a pharmacist couple, with a beautiful saintly wife played admirably by Carmen Madrid: and a beauty shop couple, with an evil harridan wife played chillingly by Rosa María Bianchi: plus the occasional police officer and a scary dog.
Some of the camera tricks can be fancy without any underling purpose, and I have not seen this much pastel neon on buildings, since that Don Johnson episode of True Hollywood Stories. Overall, however the film is nice. It is a pleasant, good time. It is not particularly scary, thrilling, funny, sexy, or clever and that is it's only real fault. There is nothing terrible memorable in the ninety odd minutes of movie.
Oh and do not watch if you are trying to quit smoking. I have never seen a movie so relentless in its promotion of tobacco. It is like watching Eat Drink Man Woman while trying to diet,
Murdering, blood, money, dimonds, Russian mafia-and everyone gets what deserves.
