1960 Lacedon Jungle in Mexico. Coatis Manu and Sacha are best friends. However, mischievous Manu is exiled from the empire for breaking a statue ordered to be made by the king, then girlfriend Sacha is captured by hunters.
An ambitious young executive is sent to retrieve his company's CEO from an idyllic but mysterious "wellness center" at a remote location in the Swiss Alps, but soon suspects that the spa's treatments are not what they seem.
This film was shot and post produced with only $50,000 dollars! With just a few copies in Mexico more than 18,000 people saw the first week in a semi-national release with a few shows at night.
This film was released a few days after an earthquake destroyed part of Mexico
and the direct competition was IT and MOTHER!
Something very interesting is that the average age of the crew was 23 at the time the film was shot.
Alicia's Dream is a melodrama and a horror film. Interesting how it talks about loneliness and how we think that a "significant other" can be the option to stop feeling lonely. Only two characters and a forest where they get lost...they have to confront each other and other dangers.
