Marina Antunes [Celluloid 02.16.11] Mexico movie trailer news drama



For his debut as director, Guillermo Ríos, a man best known for his work writing award winning television shows in Mexico, has decided to take on teen girls. Not exactly an easy topic for a man, not to mention one well removed from his teen years.

Perras (the direct translation of that title is Bitches; a good indicator of the type of movie we can expect), takes place in a special high school for troubled girls of diverse socioeconomic backgrounds. Kids can be cruel at the best of times but throw a group of girls who think they’re better than their less fortunate counterparts together and tensions are bound to boil over. And so they do.

After a tragic accident involving some of the schoolgirls, the headmistress locks the girls in a classroom until one of them fesses up. I’m not sure locking some girls up in a classroom is exactly legal but I guess when you’re dealing with troubled girls, you do what you have to to get answers. Needless to say, things don’t go over so well in close quarters.

I love how cinematographer Juan Mejia has shot the film in very plain, stark colours and the visuals are what struck me first about this trailer, followed quickly by the story which sounds like something right up my alley.

This looks really great. Girls can be little biatches to each other in high school. Tons films are made about it, but this looks more interesting than most. Nice find.
