this vacation is no vacation at all
A number of Latin American movies that I've seen look at the falsity of the lifestyles of the rich. Rodrigo Ortuzar Lynch's "All Inclusive" kind of does that, as a Chilean family stays at a Mexican resort, and the stay gives them experiences that affect each of them. The hurricane raging outside the hotel is nothing compared to the tension inside the room.
I didn't find this movie to be as good as "Y Tu Mamá También" in its look at the economic situation in Mexico. This movie seems too narrow in its focus. It does work as a look at the changes in the family's existence (especially the children's lives). It's an OK movie, not great. A really good Chilean movie from the last few years is "No", about the 1988 election that ousted Pinochet.
