In this thoroughly original and unpredictable documentary, Mexican director Alonso Ruizpalacios plays with the boundaries of nonfiction and immerses the audience into the human experience of police work within a dysfunctional system. The film takes us deep into the Mexican police force with the story of Teresa and Montoya, together known as “the love patrol.” Hailing the film at its premiere in Berlin, Variety’s lead critic Peter DeBruge wrote, “Ruizpalacios is swiftly emerging as one of the most exciting new voices in Mexican cinema.”  – Thom Powers
