Movie Info

Unhappy with her family life, dirt-poor teenager Yessica finds solace in a close friendship with shy, middle-class Miriam. But the passionate bond between the girls shatters when Yessica's stepbrother and his friend rape Yessica and the adults hold her accountable for provoking the act. Yessica's despair overwhelms her, leading to tragic consequences. 'Perfume de Violetas' transcends its social problem story with its charged, intensely physical depiction of the two girls.

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (5)

  • Perfume de Violetas is very strong stuff, and Sistach has inspired such young actors as Ayala and Gutiérrez to give sustained and harrowing portrayals.

    Oct 28, 2004 | Rating: 4/5
  • This powerfully rough slice of neo-realism, hitched to soapy melodrama, puts a heartbreakingly human face on the widespread problem of sexual assault in Mexico, especially as it applies to vulnerable kids of the inner city.

    Oct 28, 2004
  • It offers a powerful critique of a brutally exploitative, macho society in which women are disdainfully treated as inferior citizens.

  • Lest you think this a story about flowers and fragrances, let me dash the image. This is not pretty and doesn't smell so nice.
