Memories...hideous memories.

Watch it for the 80s shorts, the tight jeans, the moustaches, the bouffants and the horrific dancing - this has it all.

This little beauty also has appalling sound, some truly awkward directorial moments and a multitude of continuity and script errors.

As a whole, it's bloody awful and will appeal to only those who wish to limp down an avenue of tree-lined nostalgia.


The(ir) Blurb...

Rodolfo (Trevino) is a young bachelor doctor who has a love affair with a younger music student, Ramon (Meza). When Rodolfo's mother begins to urge his son to get married, he quickly asks modern and open-mind Olga (Lupercio) to become his wife. Ramon is heart-broken, but Dona Herlinda (del Toro) has the final solution to make everybody happy: She asks Ramon to live with her, near by Rodolfo and Olga. Everybody together forever.
