Storyline

Evaristo and Luis Antonio - indigenous brothers from the SierraTarahumara in northwest Mexico - have just graduated from boarding elementary school. Evaristo desires to continue his education, leading a bicultural life, where the Tarahumara, or Raramuri as they call themselves, have the opportunity to keep learning to speak, read and write in Spanish, the Mexican official language. Meanwhile Luis Antonio "Tony" is very happy to be done with school. Even though he is a smart kid and has won a grant to move on to high school, he prefers to live life in the ranch, where the kids grow up at a very young age. One morning the brothers are sent to deliver some medicine to a far away community. Tony asks their grandfather for permission to take his horse but the answer is no. Nevertheless, he decides to take it, even if Evaristo is not convinced. They take a wrong path that leads them to a narrow and deep canyon. The horse cannot go on so the boys tie it around a tree. When they come back for... Written by Venice Film Festival

Cochochi: The simple life by Sandra Peredo
5 April 2008 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

Cochochi is a glimpse into rural existence in the mountains of northwestern Mexico. Transportation is by donkey, broken-down bicycle or beat-up truck. The local radio station relays personal messages. When a message is aired that a relative needs medicine, Evaristo and Tony are sent to deliver it. Reluctant to travel the Tarahumara Sierra on foot, the boys steal their grandfather's only workhorse, ride happily away and get lost. Then they lose the horse and while searching for it also lose each other in the mist. This film is not for everyone. It moves slowly, the actors are non-professionals, some scenes seem gratuitous, a documentary-like look at how it is in these parts. But even so Cochochi is unforgettable. It touches the heart.
