Unexpectedly MOVING documentary
27 June 2007 | by nihaoSee all my reviews

Anyone who likes to contemplate and collect SPECIAL moments may want to hastily add COCALERO to their DVD collection. It is a special, simple,moving film. When it starts it is just a trickle... then it gets Flowing.... and before you know it you are trapped in this Human River of hope, strength and (long suppressed) pride which leaves you (or at least ME) wet -cheeked. An AMAZING feat by both EVO MORALES, Bolivia's First Indigenous President, and by the unobtrusive but ever-present Fly-on-the-Wall Director of this poetic-political Jewel. A film to re-kindle the hopes of even the most cynical. (p.s. It is also a point in favour of the director of this documentary that in no precise moment do we feel the , all to often present, hand of the demagogue. No 'preaching' irritates the viewer. We are simply voyeurs of the basics of political mechanics, and we are left to contemplate that if THIS is what the strangely naive Bolivian Indios use as political tools to insinuate themselves in the apparently Air-Tight chambers of Econo-Politics IMAGINE what the highly-funded machinery of G8 countries employs. Best Scene? There are many. I marveled at Morales' "in your face" approach to The Military's preoccupations with their future role in the political chess-board (should Evo win, that is). Comic and Eerie at the same time!
