Nice surprise
18 April 2005 | by See all my reviews

I have just seen it...well, it's really a beautiful work, i mean it, and i'm still in shock why this didn't got all the recognition and success that deserves. It's a jewel in a climb down industry like contemporary Mexican cinema, between festival and artsy intentions with not always good results, that only make run out the poor and patient followers of Mexican cinema, or really bad "light comedies" with weak auto-indulgent scripts, dull and dumb dialog (sincerely, are there any kind of literary effort behind all the insipid "light comedies" that pretend be "global" or "cosmopolitan" and only sink our screens?) All of this comes because "Zurdo" really got it: a original concept, an old Mexican flavor combined with some "futuristic" vision, and, yes... I was afraid to hear that mix, but Zurdo really succeeds with the combination. Don't be afraid, Zurdo is a warm and gentle film, and it's not a mess, it goes SOMEWHERE (thing that a lot of new Mexican films lacks), and makes it great, it got a good and compact script,good dialog, a measured direction that fits great with all the actors,(i like every one of them, but, a example of Salce's good direction, if you tremble only to hear the name of Eugenio Derbez in the cast, which is my case, well, for good i almost didn't notice his always (at least in TV) heavy handed presence.) and the art direction is to say the least, brilliant. Great for the young Salcés, i really like "Zurdo", got great moments,i was intrigued by the story: Zurdo (and all the sky full of marbles) got a magic sense. I hope that his works (and all the things he will do in a future) got all the recognition and a majority audience that really deserves.
