A great gem for all Lucha Libre fans!
12 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This DVD has all that a true fan of lucha libre could hope for. It gives you a detailed overview of the history of the sport, and goes even further. It literally takes you into the lives of these masked men and women that live their lives behind a mask. It also tell the story of El Santo, the greatest luchador in the history of the sport. Such detailed accounts on the life of this historic figure are truly rare, so this is a must have for all fans of this incredible world of masked heroes and villains. Director Carlos Avila truly submerged himself into the world of lucha libre, and gives a glimpse into this world that is not only enlightening, but also humanizes them to the point where you truly connect with them. Especially touching is the chapter that speaks of the way the mask created by a Luchador becomes a family heirloom, handed down from one generation to the next.
