Not bad, mildly entertaining.

This is a slow-moving, low-budget movie! An interesting story with a potential!
The English Subtitles are very easy to read, which is a relief! Yet, the Subtitles are seriously lagging behind the actual speaking, which can get very confusing to watch! It is not clear who is saying which words in some situations! At best, a guess work! This Subtitle fiasco got very frustrating and messed up the understanding of the Story!

The main actors are personable!
The story has holes in it, and jumps, leaving the viewer confused! A definite problem with the Script and Direction! And, in the final production, when the film was edited, some scenes went missing, perhaps! Lacks continuity!

The Movie has its poignant, warm moments on the Roof! We really get to know the two main characters and their vulnerabilities! There is a definite creativity and a quality cinematography on the roof!
The men will be drawn to what she was or was not wearing! Tantalizing! While the women will roll their eyes! ;)

Her relationship with her boyfriend was not built on enough!
Was he not worried when she disappeared? Did he look for her? Did he get angry?

What about the janitor's little girl the janitor was supposed to see, but missed the meeting? The film could have shown her, even for just a scene or two! Did he rush, after been freed, to reassure her? We will never know!
The last scenes are interesting!
She, also, has a great, sexy outfit at the end!

This is one of my favorite movies! It is funny yet very profound about social classes, and other social economic issues/differences in the country of Mexico, and other countries of Latin America.
