    • Synopsis
    • Tales of Mexico (La Habitación) is the Mexican-Polish co-production of an omnibus feature film structured with eight distinctive stories, all taking place in the
      same single location, an apartment in a house built in the French-inspired splendor of the beginning of the 20th century in Mexico City. Eight dramatic episodes
      spanning some of the most decisive moments of the last century in Mexico, from the beginning of the Mexican Revolution to the persecution of Christians
      and the xenophobic anti-Chinese immigration campaign, the massacre of the students days before the inauguration of the Olympic Games in 1968, the
      devastation of Mexico City in the earthquake of 1985 and modern times marked by decadence, poverty, youth crime, corruption, drug-trafficking and finally
      a spirit of reconstruction and building of a new hope.
      for society in the new millennium.
