Filmeweb reports that the film will open in the rest of the Americas (including the United States and Canada) over the course of the next three months and in Europe around May-June for the summer season.

In the days leading up to the premiere, El Economista and El Mañana (Cine y Arte) carried extracts from interviews with the director Carlos Cuarón. Images from the film are available at Terra. Already established as a screenwriter, this is his first feature-length film as director. This is also production company Cha Cha Cha’s first of five contracted releases. The film also screened a week early for a breast cancer benefit.
