In this teenaged female friendship, the passionate bond between dirt-poor Yessica and her middle-class friend Miriam shatters when Yessica is assaulted and the adults hold her accountable for provoking the act. <i>Perfume de Violetas</i> transcends its social problem story with its charged, intensely physical depiction of the two girls, bringing to mind both the early films of Jane Campion as well as the recent <i>Thirteen</i>. This film won over 20 awards, including 5 Mexican Academy Awards (Arieles) and was Mexico's official selection for the Oscar as Best Foreign Film in 2002.
