When Huapango and Shakespeare collide
29 November 2004 | by Mariana CornejoSee all my reviews

When you see the cast of this movie you already know where is this heading to. It's not a big deal, a so so movie if you are at least interested in watching the dance groups of the Huasteca region in a contest (because in other way you'll be bored to death). The drama may seems laughable at some points but when Shakespeare reaches the surface it becomes interesting. And even Landeta, which is not a precisely gifted actor seem to have fun in one of Shakespeare's more enjoyable characters: Iago. Lisset can't overpass a mediocre soap opera acting but... And at last but not the least there are good performances (at least as fair as expected) by Tomassi, Sevilla and a good attempt of María Elena Velasco to leave behind the annoying character of La India María. The best performance for me was given by the actor playing Felipe, the Cassio equivalent, which name I can't remember and is not even registered in the cast here.

It is not quite impossible to think of Danzón when you're watching Huapango, but here the dance is superposed to the story, and seems forced to translate Shakespeare to the Huasteca region. Shakespeare and Huapango dance didn't mix in this one. But it was a fair essay.
