El PactoReleased in:
Iyali Ballardo, Paris BallardoTags: incestSummary:
When they were children, Sergio and Teresa, brother
and sister, made a promise to never leave each other.
They grow up, and their unusual love becomes stronger.
But Teresa has inherited the mental disease that led
her mother to suicide. She only wants to live with her
brother in her own world, and becomes violent against
the rest of people.
'El pacto' (which means 'The pact') is an intense
Mexican melodrama, with many of its typical excesses,
but also with interesting psychoanalitical elements.
Sergio Véjar (camera operator in some Luis Buñuel's
most popular films) writes and directs this strange
story "based on true facts" with some reminiscences of
Buñuel's melodramas. - V. GomezControversial scenesAdded:
