Makes Raging Bull look like a kindergarden film.
30 October 2000 | by (Queens, New York) – See all my reviews

I saw this film in Argentina in 1995 on television. This film is perhaps one of the greatest boxing and biopic film ever made in my opinion.

Even if you're not a boxing fan, You'll enjoy the beautiful color this film was photographed in. This film tells the story of an Argentinian boxer who becomes famous and falls faster than the Jake Lamotta character in Raging Bull. Add to all of this the historical background Gatica takes place in. In one of the more amazing scenes I have ever seen the character of Gatica has just lost his son but is more grief stricken by the death of Eva Peron who he has just visted on her death bed. Gatica is a socially detached character who seems to function according to his own rules. He is a womanizer and a brute but the film unlike Raging Bull does not ask us to judge him but to feel what he feels. Gatica is swept up by history even though according to himself he was'nt even that good and did'nt even want to fight. You have to admire the director who makes a Film and not some boring "Playhouse" drama. The film answers some of the toughest questions posed by visual planning scenes out and some great editing and music soundtrack which takes you through the times of 1940's & 50's.
