Lake Tahoe is a 2008 Mexican drama film, directed by Fernando Eimbcke. It premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival in Germany on February 9, 2008 and won ten awards, including two Silver Ariels for best supporting actor (Hector Herrera) and best director. The title is derived from an irrelevant tourist sticker from the famed U.S. resort on the family car that acts as a kind of Wellesian "Rosebud" motif. The difference here though is that they have never been there. The title is therefore the more sarcastic, as the setting is very different from Lake Tahoe itself. The film follows a teenage boy who has crashed his family car and his prolonged attempts to find a new engine part to fix it. Also, under the surface, his and his family's grief at his father's very recent death is shown. Shots are brightly coloured and arranged post-card style with figures crossing the image from side to side in Eimbcke's unique style of photography.
