Still from the Mexican film "Nosotros los Nobles."

The new film "Nosotros los Nobles" has no high speed chases, no explosions and not a single high tech special effect. But the film has become a blockbuster hit in its home country of Mexico.

It brought in record box office returns and is currently the most successful Mexican movie of all time. It's a simple parable about a family of spoiled aristocrats — the Nobles of the title. They're cut down to size when their father decides to teach them a lesson.

Alex Cohen talks to the film's writer and director, Gary Alazraki.
