A nun convinced that faith and fasting can perform miracles. An anorexic mother ashamed of her daughter’s chubbiness. And her husband, a professor who lusts after a student with a healthy appetite. Bad Habits is the story of three women and the way that their eating habits dominate and determine their lives. Faith, love, and vanity are put to the test at the dining table.
Seven years ago, Simón Bross was diagnosed with cancer. He recovered after having a kidney removed, but back when he did not know whether or not he was going to live or die, he made a list of the things that he had yet to accomplish. One of those activities was to shoot a feature film. Malos hábitos is the product.
