Non actors?
26 February 2006 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

I don't understand the technique of NON ACTORS. The only thing that Amat and his mega hero Carlos Reygadas achieve, is to have the worse acting performance ever. This poor people, can't even interpret themselves. Please guys, read slowly the Bresson notes, or watch his movies...

Of course in France they can't understand the difference between a good dialog in Spanish, an the pathetic words that you put in the mouth of your non existing characters.

It is your responsibility, to take this only good faces, to the next level. But I guess that as usually, Mexican curious, sells...

anyway, I guess we have to thank that you are trying to do something different.. thanks?
