Continuity mistake: Cleo's pregnancy. When she goes to the doctor, they tell her she's 3-4 months pregnant and her baby is due in June. So she goes to the doctor in December (also they have a Christmas tree in the house when she tells the senora). When they go to the hacienda for the holidays which is still December, her belly is huge like she's 7 months pregnant already. Further more when they go back to the city and all go to the movie theater, her pregnant belly is gone.

Trivia: Professor Zobek is played by Victor Resendiz, aka Latin lover, who is a professional wrestler in Mexico.


Cleo: I like being dead.

Sra. Sofía: We are alone. No matter what they tell you, we women are always alone.

Fermín: And I started drinking, and then huffing. I was dying. But then I discovered martial arts. And everything came into focus. Just like when you look at me.
