La India. 1975.

Индия / La India. 1975.
 A boy after watching his mother making love to another man becomes obsessed with her, to the point that as he grows up becomes a rival to her mother's (a cabaret dancer called LA India) lover.
From a 70's Mexican film we are always expecting something out of the normal to say the least, this one its not above those expectations, a mix of a weird story, surrealism and oedipus complex all under teh Mexican sun make this one a real winner. The director works well with the actors, but sometimes over use a bit those long close-up shots, and does divide the film in two different parts, one more conventional with a normal story, the other a more surrealist, but still a very positive work.
...Calling for mummy never was so weird.
