Movie Info

Away from his body, the severed head of Juan Perez the Great (a low life magician of a small urban circus) recalls what led him to his own decapitation in the claws of a terrible Guillotine, like this: After a dreadful economic crisis, the Aztlan Circus (where our magician has lived so many years) begins to layoff artists from its show. To keep his place in the company, Juan Perez promises a sensational beheading act that could certainly bring the glory back to the big top. With the clock ticking and no money to build an artifact like this for his magic act, Juan Perez the Great is forced to break into a Museum to steal an original XVI Century Guillotine, that carries a deadly curse upon it...

Audience Reviews for Meet the Head of Juan Perez (Conozca la cabeza de Juan Perez)

Fun enough, but incredibly uneven. The film goes from comedy to drama, back and forth so many times, it's dizzying. If you choose to ignore all that, it's well written, photographed and acted, especially by Silverio Palacios and María Aura. Looking past the fact that it's unbelievably racist and stereotypical towards Chinese people, the movie's actually pretty funny. Just don't expect for it to grab your complete attention, because it won't.
