Description In Mexico City, late teen friends Tenoch Iturbide and Julio Zapata are feeling restless as their respective girlfriends are traveling together through Europe before they all begin the next phase of their lives at college. At a lavish family wedding, Tenoch and Julio meet Luisa Cortés, the twenty-something wife of Tenoch's cousin Jano, the two who have just moved to Mexico from Spain. Tenoch and Julio try to impress the beautiful Luisa by telling her that they will be taking a trip to the most beautiful secluded beach in Mexico called la Boca del Cielo (translated to Heaven's Mouth), the trip and the beach which in reality don't exist. When Luisa learns of Jano's latest marital indiscretion straight from the horse's mouth, she takes Tenoch and Julio's offer to go along on this road trip, meaning that Tenoch and Julio have to pull together quickly a road trip to a non-existent beach. They decide to head toward one suggested by their friend Saba, who seems a little confused himself of this beach's location. On the road trip, which ends up not being totally harmonious, the three go on a trip of discovery. For Luisa, she has to figure out what to do with her immediate future based on the news from Jano and a secret she is keeping. And Tenoch and Julio have to figure out what their friendship really means as they grow up.

    The story wasn't really that extraordinary, but what made this film awesome was how the actors delivered it.

    I remember hearing about this film over ten years ago and wanting badly to see it, because few things make me smile more than a couple of hot guys making out with each other, and this scenario seemed like every woman's dream; but back then it wasn't so easy to find stuff like this, online or elsewhere. I finally saw it a year or two ago online. While the guys indeed were hot and there were some really hot scenes, and the movie was good overall, I hadn't expected that it would be so tragically sad and depressing at the end. It just left me with such a sad feeling :(

    While I was learning Spanish, this was one of the movies I watched to improve my knowledge about spanish people. Sorry to say but I was shocked and didn't find it good at all.

    Notice the lack of dialogue to disguise the fact that this isn't an English language film..
