A Lost Year

Those who are familiar with social movements in Mexico in the 1970s may find this simple drama significantly more compelling, as the student movements of that period form the backdrop for the main story. This film celebrates the friendship that developed between two high school girls who have each recently moved to Toluca, a provincial capital city in Mexico. Not only do they manage to retain their friendship despite their both falling in love with the same boy, but they are joined in grief when he dies.

I recommend this movie. The fact that it is not well known is interesting in itself, to me. Everything about the plot, the dramatic situations, and the performances will hold the interest of movie lovers, plus this is a good way for peopoe who have no first-hand knowleedge of contemporary Mexico to initiate further research.The story is about two teenage girls, Maty and Yolanda, who move to and meet in Toluca in the 1970s. Their relationshbip, the experiences they go through, and the high school classmates and people they meet comprises the plot. You won't forget this movie.
