Perfectos Desconocidos, also known as Perfect Strangers, is a 2017 Mexican comedy-drama film directed by Manolo Caro. It features an ensemble cast of popular Mexican actors including Cecilia Suarez, Bruno Bichir, Ana Claudia Talancon, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Miguel Rodarte, and Mariana Trevino. The movie tells the story of a group of long-time friends who gather for a dinner party one evening. During the course of the evening, the group decides to play a game in which they all put their cell phones on the table and agree to share every text message, phone call, and email they receive over the course of the night.

As the game progresses and the secrets come out, the dynamic of the group begins to change. Relationships are tested, and long-held resentments and secrets are revealed. What began as a lighthearted game quickly turns into a tense examination of the true nature of friendship, relationships, and privacy in the era of modern technology and social media.

Throughout the course of the movie, each character is forced to confront their own flaws and fears as their deepest secrets are revealed. Cecilia Suarez gives a standout performance as Eva, a successful businesswoman who seems to have it all together on the surface, but who is struggling with the fallout from her husband's infidelity. Bruno Bichir is also excellent as the arrogant and controlling Antonio, who is hiding a devastating secret of his own.

The other members of the ensemble cast all deliver solid performances as well, with Ana Claudia Talancon playing the sympathetic role of Flora, a young mother who is struggling to balance her career and her family life, and Manuel Garcia-Rulfo providing some much-needed comic relief as the bumbling Pepe. Miguel Rodarte is also great as the flirtatious Alfonso, whose own secrets threaten to destroy his marriage.

Despite the heavy subject matter, the movie balances the drama with plenty of humor and witty dialogue. Director Manolo Caro infuses the film with a lively energy, keeping the pace brisk and the tension high throughout.

Perfectos Desconocidos is a thought-provoking and entertaining examination of the nature of friendships and relationships in the modern age. It asks tough questions about trust, honesty, and privacy, and does so with humor and warmth. It's a must-see for fans of Mexican cinema and anyone interested in exploring the complex relationships between people in a fast-paced, technological world.

Perfectos Desconocidos is a 2019 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 44 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.6 and a MetaScore of 63.
