"Intimidades entre Shakespeare y Victor Hugo"

I saw this movie at the cinemateque in Mexico city which is always a great experience, especially when the cost for all these national and international films is 3 dollars.

The movie is directed by Yulene Olaizola. The movie is a documentary about the director's grandmother who runs a boarding house. The tiltle of the film has to do with the name of the streets the house is located at; Shakespeare and Victor Hugo. The grandmother is a great woman, larger than life. The story actually focuses and the dramatic life ofa very particular guest a young gay guy, Jorge Riosse that became the grandmother's great friend. A painter, a singer, and perhaps a murderer whose life had a tragic end.
