Rafael, Elmo and Pablo run away from the strict Catholic retirement home where they live to enjoy one last weekend of debauchery and fun. Broche de Oro is a comedy road-trip of adventure and discovery. It celebrates the true power of friendship and living life to the fullest.
Broche De Oro is destined for greatness as one of the best, if not the best Puerto Rican movie that has ever been produced. Raúl Marchand and the entire cast did an outstanding job in making the audience laugh, cry, and at the end applaud (first time I have seen this with such force). While in most movies the audience leaves when the end credits start rolling, in the viewing i attended a large majority stayed to find out who participated in this movie.
The story that Raúl Marchand wrote is one with a universal appeal, as it deals with the strong bonds between fathers and sons over two generations, and the bonds of friendships that endure time. Therefore, I fully expect and hope this movie will have lots of success outside of Puerto Rico.
If you live in Puerto Rico and have not seen this movie, make sure you bring your kids and your parents and grandparents to see it, and make it a family event. You will certainly cherish that moment!
