The best film in the History of Puerto Rico
19 January 2002 | by (Puerto Rico) – See all my reviews

This is the best film ever made in Puerto Rico. It was shot in 1953 using real kids in a Puerto Rico that no longer exists.

It features Ramón Rivero, better known as Diplo, the Charlie Chaplin on Puerto Rico, in the title role of `Pepe;' more proof of his incredible range as an actor/comedian.

The movie is based on a real story of a group of very poor kids REAL poor...(barefoot, playing with broken bats, torn mitts)...trying to raise funds for their baseball team.

Don Pepe (Ramón Rivero) is their coach, a man who no one but the kids (not even his wife) takes seriously.

There is a scene in this film that will break your heart, and make you cry; reminiscent of `Il Postino,' and `Cinema Paradiso' but in Spanish.

A classic. A gorgeous film for the whole family.
