No Mambo Invasion

With money coming from as many sources as possible, this was the last and least effective installment of the trilogy of films based on music, with almost no dialog, made by Paul Leduc. Preceded by "Barroco" and "Latino Bar", taken from literary works (Cuban Alejo Carpentier's "Concierto barroco" and Mexican Federico Gamboa's "Santa"), this one is based on true events that occurred during the US invasion of Panamá in 1989, although it is definitely too bizarre for any Panamanian or any witness to the genocide many citizens of this country witnessed. Aesthetically, the images desperately beg for spoken language, while most of the cast seem utterly unconvincing. It has its admirers, though, more than I thought. After "Dollar Mambo", Leduc turned his attention to digital animation, and did not make another feature until 2006, the very good "Cobrador: In God We Trust".
