"Revolution" takes for excuse the Centennial celebration of the Mexican Revolution to show the current forms of filmmaking in Mexico. But, is it Mexican cinema? It doesn't care to answer this question.
I just saw this movie at the Morelia Film Festival, where the majority of the directors were present to discuss their films. It's interesting and it deserves to be celebrated the diversity of contemporary Mexican cinema. "Revolution" is not film about the Mexican Revolution, neither and it's not a triumphant film. It is a film that explores the concept of "revolution" as a renewal or as an critique of what has been said about it.
"Revolution" is not a protest film, but of personal art commitment of each director. Worth watching.
