Fuentes' dreamlike magical-realism spawns an exquisite and hypnotic chiller. Felipe Montero responds to a Want Ad in a Mexico City newspaper. He's exactly right for the job - it's as though the ad was written just for him. At the address he meets a woman who surely must be over a hundred years old, and her yound niece, Aura. A strange, haunting and beautiful story unfolds as Felipe is drawn into their lives. 60 minutes-best listened to with headphones for true 3-D sound.
