The best Mexican film I have seen in a very long time
Ver, Oir & Callar is pretty good for what it is, a well made Mexican action thriller that couldn't possibly expect us to believe everything we are seeing on screen and, to be honest, doesn't care that we don't. That attitude is probably all for the best in this case, since it allows the filmmakers to create elaborate action and stunt sequences without having to pay the slightest heed to that fantasy killjoy known as 'credibility.'
This film is far more concerned with attitude and style, with a thief every female youngster would love to meet and the cop's daughter every one of us would like to date, than with the actual story, full with those scenes that have become the stock-in-trade for modern action pictures. The movie is well directed, fairly edited and quite beautifully photographed by cinematographer Lars Herrmann. This is by far the best Mexican film I have seen in a very long time.
