The marriage of Ignacio (Christian Meier) and Zoe (the stunning Bárbara Mori) is on the rocks even before she takes up with Ignacio's younger brother, Gonzalo (Manolo Cardona), a scruffy, laid-back painter who is the complete opposite of his corporate, uptight sibling. On top of Ignacio and Zoe's baby problems -- they can't conceive and she refuses to adopt--the passion has all but left their 10-year-old marriage. Ignacio insists on having sex only on Saturday, and their house has all the warmth of a Sharper Image catalogue. Gonzalo, with his rumpled attire and lean build, is a tempting alternative.

Weak
Also known as El callejón de los milagros, the producers will not hesitate for a second to tell you this is "the most awarded film in Mexican history."

Not much you have to do to get those Mexican awards, it appears.
