Movie Info

Corruption, kidnapping, and vigilante justice fuel this explosive debut by Mexican filmmaker Everardo Gout. Set in Mexico City during three consecutive World Cup tournaments, three lives impacted by abduction intersect. Lupe, an idealistic cop, is tasked to investigate a crime ring and finds that justice has no value when a human life has a price. When Susana's businessman-husband Arturo is taken, she must go outside the law to fight for his release. And Iguana is conflicted as he dreams of becoming a boxer even as he is drawn into a lifestyle that finds him guarding kidnap Victim X and facing down a criminal mastermind. (C) Cinema Libre

Critic Reviews for Days of Grace

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (4)

Gout undermines his own spiky, ambitious narrative with all the visual interference, as dazzling as it often is.

"Days of Grace" is a potent and vigorous film. It may not illuminate the depths or explore the causes of Mexico's crisis, but it mines that crisis for memorable images and dramatic scenes.

Most of this frantic moviemaking is more disorienting than riveting.

The dizzying narrative pings hither and thither, with first-time director Gout confidently deploying different screen ratios and film stocks to remind the audience where they are in the timeline.

The rapid-fire editing and an interesting musical score make you so dizzy it's very hard at times to follow who is doing what to whom and when. Still, there are nifty twists in the histrionic, compelling storytelling.

It does have enough action to be entertaining and it will give a lot more to the viewer who can work out the style intricacies.

Audience Reviews for Days of Grace


There are some amazing long takes here, yes, and the brutality depicted is really appropriate; however, it seems more than evident that Gout is only aiming for style, putting together three stories using absurd twists that render the whole meaningless.
