A Desperate Bet for a Movie
29 September 2005 | by (Monterrey, Mexico) – See all my reviews

In the Mexican Movie market, movies were beginning to look cliché. One of the reasons is that most movies provide Mexico City-centric views, and the other reason is that many try to imitate, without success, hits like "Y Tu Mamá Tambien", or "Amores Perros"...

7 Días is a heavy bet for an alternative style of cinema, with a view outside of Mexico City.

It is a funny story that summarizes the culture of Monterrey, a story of desperate success, which mirrors the history of the city, the value of heavy bets, an alternative sort of comedy, and a passion for U2.

It is, in a very real sense, like the Heroes del Silencio song, a bet for rock n' roll.

The movie is successful in reflecting the culture of the newer generation of the city, the social dynamic of the country from a Monterrey perspective, and the successful history of taking chances, reflection of the entrepreneur spirit of the city.

It is a recommended movie for anyone trying to find a good laugh, and a better understanding of Mexico outside of the capital.

The best part of the movie is the editing, although it starts slow, the ending is incredibly emotive. The views from the city and the cinematography is also pretty good, with the cameraman's ability to transform the "Edificio Acero" into a postcard view! As an inhabitant of Monterrey it is also exciting to see a movie that is so funny and successful in the management of its theme, and I found it weird to actually recognize the locations in which the actions transpired...

Acting is also very good, though probably not Oscar-Worthy.

In general, this movie is a must-see for Mexican Cinema fans, it is a turning point for the movement, and a very funny one too!
