Ernest Borgnine plays Rex Page, an old man who is bitter about never becoming famous and having lived a life without any meaning. After suffering a stroke, he ends up in a nursing home staffed by Latin American immigrants. Put off by the situation, Rex focuses his energy on getting out, which places him at odds with the Latino workers. However, their relationship takes on new meaning when it is discovered that he once shook hands with Vicente Fernandez, a Mexican singer, producer and actor idolized throughout Latin culture. The employees soon begin to treat Rex like the celebrity he's always dreamed of being. Written by
It's sweet. It's about real life. Is well acted. The script is great. I had a wonderful time while watching it. Excellent performance of the late Ernest Borgnine! Beautiful music! It's about life, it's simple and profound at the same time, the kind of film that were missed very much in these modern current days... It has a delicate and original humor sense. It's romantic, it's funny, it's sweet, it's sad. It has a very intelligent way to mix the Latin community, its music, its principles, with a real spaghetti wester! An emotional beautiful movie which everyone, for sure, will enjoy watching and remember for a long time afterward...!
