NTSC/Region 1. The first feature film from Simon Bross, Bad Habits skewers one Mexican family who has a whole buffet of eating disorders. A delicious tale of faith, love, vanity, and leaky pipes, this engaging debut was inspired by the true story of a 17th century Mexican nun. One family has a whole set of diverse eating disorders-their faith, love and vanity are put to the test at the dinner table. Matilde is a nun convinced that faith can turn wine into water. Secretly, she begins fasting to prevent what she considers to be the second great flood. Elena is a thin, stylish woman ashamed of her daughters weight. She is willing to do anything to make her daughter thin so she will look like a princess at her first communion. At the same time, Elenas architect husband Gustavo cannot cope any longer with his wife's gaunt figure during intimate moments. For an escape, he finds himself in the arms of a buxom female student.
