Wonderful for fans of Mexican music and culture
6 June 2010 | by (Santa Rosa, California, USA) – See all my reviews

I've loved this movie and the music in it for many years. It's about the music culture of Northern Mexico and the southwest of the United States. Stars like Flaco Jiminez and Lydia Mendoza appear along with other Tex-Mex musicians. I loaned it to a Mexican/American friend who was in his early sixties and when he returned it he confessed that it made him cry, because it took him back to his childhood as a migrant worker and things he hadn't thought about for years. To me that is a high recommendation. Even if you don't like this kind of music you'll get a kick out of Los Alegres del Teran playing VOLVER without missing a note in a horse corral while riders jostle them. Great documentary.
