Lake Tahoe - 2008 Mexican film directed by Fernando Eimbcke. Teenage Juan crashes his family's car into a telegraph pole on the outskirts of town, and then scours the streets searching for someone to help him fix it. His quest will bring him to Don Heber, an old paranoid mechanic whose only companion is Sica, his almost human Boxer (dog); to Lucia, a young mother who is convinced that her real place in life is as a lead singer in a punk band, and to "The One Who Knows," a teenage mechanic obsessed with martial arts and Kung Fu philosophy. The absurd and bewildering worlds of these characters drag Juan into a one day journey in which he will come to accept what he was escaping from in the first place. Stars Diego Cataño, Hector Herrera, Daniela Valentine and Juan Carlos Lara II. In Spanish with optional English subtitles, 81 minutes. Unrated, but rated 10 in Switzerland and 13 in Argentina - has bad language.
