This film is about two Jewish teenagers growing up in Mexico City in the 60s. One is from a Sephardic Jewish background. Her relatives came from Turkey to Mexico. They speak Ladino, the language spoken by the Jews in Spain when they were kicked out by Columbus' backers Ferdinand and Isabella. She has a big family. The other has only her parents and one uncle. Her family was executed during the Holocaust. Rejecting the social and political traditions, will they find happiness?
A wonderful and moving movie, an outstanding cast and excellent performances. One of the very first movie regarding the Jewish community in Mexico City.

There also some dull moments, that I started to yawn, know what will follow.
Along the whole movie I felt that something is missing in portraying the époque, the characters and their relationships. It is very difficult to keep movie intensity, based on family story along the years, without a nice and intelligent script. Another shortcoming, at least from the common spectator view, is the ageing problem of the people in this movie. The grandma looks the same for at least 25 years, which I wish to be so for everybody getting old! In summary, the opportunity was there, but the director missed it....maybe a retake will correct those weaknesses.
