Best movie I've seen in months!!!!!!!
18 December 2006 | by carolinebrownmontereySee all my reviews

I just Saw "7 Dias"(7 Days) for the second time and me and my friends just loved it. What is going on with Mexican cinema this days? Gonzales Inarritu, Cuaron, Del Toro, Monteverde, and now this little gem.

The movie grabs you so fast in the beginning that half way in it, I didn't realized that I was also reading sub-tittles. (It seems that sub-tittles is the new trend, ha?)

The story is as simple as an underdog rock promoter that wants to get out of mediocrity and comes up with the idea of taking to a small city in northern Mexico "U2", the biggest band on earth. (But this is Mexico remember not the "staples center".)

That Is the tip of the iceberg in a story that really is about life or dead decisions, friendship, and most important growing up ( Even harder in a country that opportunities are not the everyday commodity.) And this is a comedy!!! ....And you laugh!!! ...How cool is that?

Don't expect to see a lot of "U2", because the band is just an excuse for the story. Not the movie by itself. But everything is so well done that becomes a wonderful and delightful experience. The photography, the art,the locations, are very interesting and peculiar. The score and the music is so moving that I even got the soundtrack from amazon.

The actors are great!!!! A multilayered middle class hero "Claudio caballero", is incredibly played by Eduardo Arroyuelo, who is sooooooooooooo hot! that no doubt he is the new Antonio Banderas, being a blend between Antonio, Johnny Depp and Orlando bloom, (if you can picture that!) Eduardo is the star in the movie and it's amazing how subtle and elegant he plays the character, blowing me away in the end where ( wins or not, I'm not telling you, and doesn't matter) he as an actor makes the most amazing choice revealing an universal truth about success, "The world changes, you don't".

The other character "Tony" played by Jaime Camil (An other hottie!!) takes the comedic relief by showing the other face of the coin of a Mexican mafia member, as well as being the perfect sidekick for Arroyuelo. They both together work and look great!!!

I can't wait to see it again, this is the type of movie that is worth my dollars and my minutes... If Mexicans are doing these I'll stick to the Mexicans!!! Or if I have to be patriotic and wait and see the Hollywood remake; God! please just tell them to keep Eduardo!!!!!!!
