More Than Anything in the World

The narrator of this moody 2006 psychodrama is a young girl (Julia Urbini) made wise beyond her years by the bad choices of her seductive, neurotic, pill-popping single mom (Elizabeth Cervantes). After they move to a congested neighborhood in Mexico City, the mother has trouble juggling her job, her men, her drive time, and the daughter's schedule; meanwhile the child encounters a cancer-stricken neighbor (Juan Carlos Colombo) and, swayed by a classmate's supernatural tales, decides he must be a vampire. Writer-directors Andres Leon Becker and Javier Sola are preoccupied with boundaries (the mother can't draw the line with her lovers, the girl pushes the limits of her imagination, and the sick man is about to cross over into the beyond), so it's a happy irony that the movie transcends its own limitations of budget and scale. 90 min.
