Something is wrong with Alicia's mother Emilia. The two recently moved into a Mexico City apartment after Emilia's break-up with her boyfriend. But Emilia is hardly settled; she can barely get Alicia to school on time, she comes home with strange men at night, and she is often depressed. Upon consulting her classmate Lucia, Alicia resolves that her mother must be possessed by a vampire and that the root of this evil force is surely Hector, Alicia's old, sickly neighbor. Alicia will do anything to save her mother and break the curse. Andrés León Becker and Javier Solar's MORE THAN ANYTHING IN THE WORLD explores the loving and complex relationship between a single mother and her daughter through the imaginative eyes of a seven-year-old. In her impressive performance, child actress Julia Urbini convincingly invites us to share in her convoluted world. This subtle and touching audience favorite won major awards at the Guadalajara and Montreal Film Festivals. (In Spanish with English subtitles) – E.J.B.
