An impeccable Hitchcock homage with de la Iglesia's bent sense of humor, Ferpect Crime features Guillermo Toledo as Rafael, a department store clerk with ambition… ambition to be the manager of the floor where he works! So dedicated to this task is Rafael that he ruthlessly competes with his rival for the position yet still finds time to wine-dine-and-everything else his lovely co-workers. All except one that is, the homely Lourdes (Cervera) to whom he pays little attention—until they find themselves with a dead body on their hands and Rafael must give in to Lourdes' romantic demands or risk being exposed as a killer. – Brattle Theatre
