REVIEW: From the
creators of the film "Y Tu Mama Tambien" comes "Rudo y Cursi" a
wacky comedy that is set to bring laughs as the most famous game
in the world is played. This is a comical social satire to the
recruitment of soccer players and the factors that come to be
part it; skill, technique without leaving behind the issue of
poverty, and ignorance.
Director and Writer Carlos Cuaron has set the stage for this
film in rural Mexico, where "machos" have dreams, vicious
hobbies, and a passion for soccer. When soccer recruiter shows
up in this little town brothers Beto (Diego Luna ) and Tato
(Gael Garcia Bernal) rivalry to become a famous soccer player in
the big leagues. While they each come across some comical
hillbilly meets the city type of mishaps they learn that fame
and money cannot buy them happiness.
The film is in Spanish with English and French subtitles. Some
parts were narrated by the soccer recruiter which adds a bit of
intrigue to the story. Expect obscene language and vulgarity.
