Cómprame un Revólver (Buy Me a Gun)

Julio Hernández Cordón

In a dystopian “Mad Max”-like version of Mexico, nine-year-old Huck is being hidden by her father. This is necessary as a Mafia organisation that rules ruthlessly in this apocalyptic spirit world is in the habit of hunting on women, of whom there aren ́t many left. Huck ́s father, who lives in dependence on the fancies of Capo due to his drug addiction, has already lost his older daughter and his wife through them. In secret, Huck keeps meeting up with a couple of clandestine kids of her age who are also hidden in this barren neighbourhood. Together they try to save this harmfully imbalanced environment. It quickly becomes apparent that Huck is meant to be a heroine – she is not named after a character of a Mark Twain story for no reason. This Mad-Twain genre film has been orchestrated magnificently despite a low budget. One of our favourites!
