If you really believe in something, you must pursue it till the end., 2 February 2015
Author: Chessurrr from Russia

The main character, Carlos, is an Elvis impersonator, greatly fond of the singer, to an extent that his daughter's shares her name with Elvis's daughter. He has two lives: in one of them he's an ordinary assembly-line worker, and in the other one he performs at tiny events, singing his heart out - and he does it very well, as Carlos, indeed, possesses talent.

From the very beginning this movie starts to tug at your heartstrings when you see Carlos quietly "biding his time" at the factory, while wishing for the time he can go back on stage. Music in his headphones is the only solace for him; also, it's a way for him to remain in his dream life, at least partially.

However, in this dream life his wife and daughter were unable to find a place for themselves, and had to go their separate way (although Carlos still loves his family).

It's heartbreaking to see how the character is suffering because he feels so lost; the reason for that is feeling that he's leaving not the life is supposed to be living, but he can do nothing about it.

Throughout the movie you keep guessing to what extent Carlos is obsessed with Elvis: whether he tries to give credit to the singer's work or he no longer realises that they are two different people.

Putting aside delusions, what makes an impression is how with religious zeal he sticks for what he believes in - one way or another.

'If you really believe in something, you must pursue it till the end. Those who don't are unhappy.'

I guess many people will feel for Carlos and his torments. Show me a person who saying they have never howled inside, desperate to believe that their "real" life has been misplaced by some cosmic error. Show me this person - and I'll show you a liar.
