Amazing
1 November 2007 | by kashjobraniSee all my reviews

This is an amazing, and ground breaking film that gives an aesthetic and fun portrayal of these indigenous female wrestlers (CHOLITAS)from Bolivia. This looks into their personal lives outside of the ring, by showing the wrestlers with their families. By doing this, you get a better understanding of these amazing women, and develop a genuine liking of them. You become captivated by them. In addition, the scenery and cinematography is beautiful.

I highly recommend this film to anyone who want to be entertained from start to finish. I wish I could watch these matches on a weekly basis, and even attend a match. How fun!!!! My only question is- When can we see more?????
