This film from Fernando Eimbcke was shot completely inside and apartment, and has received lots of recognition in Mexico for its quality. After winning ten Ariel Awards there, the film also played at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival and then showed up later that year for Toronto's festival as well.

The story centers on Flama and Moko, two 14-year-olds who have been best friends since childhood. Although they're looking at just another boring Sunday, they are content since they really have everything they need - an apartment free of parents, videogames, porn mags, soft drinks, and a pizza on its way to being delivered. Despite these simple plans, forces soon combine to send things terribly awry - between the electric company, a neighbor, the pizza deliveryman, some chocolate brownies and a painting of ducks, they soon find their easygoing Sunday broken. Several issues come up as a result, including their parents' divorce.

Look for this coming-of-age story to capture similar attention to a movie that emerged a few years ago - Y Tu Mama Tambien. That film was raunchy and unique in its thoughtful treatment of teenage boys who have journeyed on a road trip. Such natural comparisons should only bode well for the prospects of Duck Season as it hits art house theaters. (Kim Hollis/BOP)
