This is about finding yourself and not settling for the norm
10 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. It's a movie about finding your dream; about stepping outside the box, and not being afraid to try something new and different. The movie is about Edward, a young man who wants to be a mariachi. In his quest, we are shown the beautiful traditional culture that makes up Mexico. As a teacher, I endeavor to expose my students to Mexican culture by singing "Las Mañanitas" to them, explaining how mariachis are hired to sing the traditional birthday song to a loved one. How they typically come in the morning and sing outside her window. In this movie, my students will get to see this. I explain to them about the Mariachi culture, and this movie shows this. I teach them about "El día de los muertos" and this movie has beautiful scenes on this. I could go on, but I think you get the picture. Watching this movie, you will see the many wonderful Mexican traditions as Edward goes about finding himself. And if that isn't enough, we are treated to Lila Down's beautiful voice, and beautiful Mariachi music. They tried to pack a lot in to this movie, and that might be the reason for its lack of transition, but in my estimation it makes up for it in heart.
