Malos Hábitos (Bad Habits)

Bad Habits is an undistinguished 2007 Mexican film about eating disorders and obsessions. The tedious Spanish language film had four parallel storylines of people with 'bad habits', including a nun who starved herself believing that it would avert disaster given the natural diasters and many deaths in Baja California at that time, a vain woman who ate little and imposed different unhealthy slimming programmes on her fat little daughter and finally her husband who disliked her skeletal frame during intercourse and had cheated on her in a continuing affair with a buxom student. I found the movie to be wearisome with little to recommend. 4.5/10
