In frank debt to Schnitzler’s La Ronde, Vicki Baum’s Grand Hotel, and the broken telephone, this tribute to four great centennial Mexican writers, set in 1963, traces a circle of unease –but also of black humor, pastel pink, red and tricolor – among the star vedette of Ciro’s, the particular (and even intimate) of congress Deputy Sánchez de Pérez Ambrosio, the Secretary and a recently released Marxist from Lecumberri. Until they run out of chances.
