| "Meltdown of a perfect relationship", the Mexican take
In recent years, the 'sub-genre' of "meltdown of a perfect relationship in non-chronological order" has been one of my one of my favorites things to watch. I watched LuTo (Luisa- Tomás) without knowing it would be an example of this.

In general I enjoyed the film, and I appreciate that Mexican directors are making this kind of movies, reflective, sober, nice cinematography and great use of subtle slow electronic music. As a plus, like many of the good Mexican films in the recent years, it offers a (somewhat small) window to know a little more about Mexican lifestyle, in this case mid- class Mexico City.

However, I did find a couple of issues that almost ruined for me the whole experience. The first one is that I did not feel empathy for the couple, I did not feel sorry for watching the downfall of their relationship because I did not buy the "they were the perfect couple" from the beginning. This is in part due to the not so strong (IMO) performances of the main characters and in part the non-chronological storytelling; filmmakers really have to master it to make it work.

It is a decent effort that is well worth your time. I definitely look forward to watch more films by this director.
