<< Return to All Films | Sinopsis en Español

Making a meager living with bit parts in cheesy novelas, struggling actor Eligio (Gael García Bernal) scratches out a life in the D.F., surrounded by close friends, bolstered by the love of his beautiful wife, the writer Susana (Verónica Echegui), and engaging in his own private little sins. But when Susana goes missing, Eligio’s entire world is upended, sending him into a spiral of insecurity, self-doubt and a crazed desperation to know exactly what’s going on and take charge. Quickly piecing together enough clues to figure out where Susana might have fled to, he takes off on an unplanned journey to retrieve his partner, leading to an unexpected challenging of his own deeply ingrained machismo in the unlikeliest of places in this fresh, funny and honest portrait of a relationship at its breaking point.

Based on José Agustín’s 1982 novel DESERTED CITIES, veteran writer/director/producer Roberto Sneider’s (DOS CRIMENES) latest film transcends the typical ‘fish out of water’ narrative, never taking the expected route in its candid look at the casual hypocrisies that threaten relationships, as well as sly, subtle observations on many Americans’ perceptions of Mexico and its people. Played against the (literally and figuratively) white background of Iowa, YOU’RE KILLING ME SUSANA is a sensitive, often hilarious look at the passive/aggressive games played by two people who haven’t quite graduated to full-fledged adulthood, at least not yet.

Título: Me estas metando Susana

En esta delicada y romántica comedia sobre una relación en punto de quiebre, Eligio, aspirante a actor, subsiste apenas rodeado de amigos cercanos, apuntalado por el amor de su bella esposa, Susana, y entregado a sus propios pecados privados. Pero cuando desaparece Susana, Eligio se embarca en un viaje para recuperar su pareja que lo llevará a inesperados desafíos a su profundo y enraizado machismo, en uno de los lugares mas inimaginables.


"A romantic comedy with an important and valid message that tries to go further than the modest intentions of this genre."- Tijuaneo
