Just Walking Just Walking

Revenge is a dish served smoking hot and lightning-quick in this full-throttle heist flick. When macho Mexican crime lord Felix and his brooding, baby-faced triggerman (Diego Luna) cross a quartet of sexy Spanish safecrackers, they'll find out that hell truly hath no fury like a gang of tough-as-nails women out to settle a score.

At first the enigma is endearing, but soon Fe realizes someone (or is it something?) sinister is looking to join her love triangle…. Blurring the boundaries between the mundane and the mysterious, The Rapture of Fe is the sexy supernatural tale of a woman's will to survive in the face of oppression.
