Mexico's First True Documentary
20 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

I just saw this film the very next day it premiered here in Mexico, even Diego Luna was there, and I got to ask him some questions and congratulate him for his work, which is superb, because it's an incredibly great directing work by Diego, especially being his first time in the director's seat. The film has everything a great documentary can have: Brilliant editing, great and very characteristic Mexican music, the people he interviewed was greatly chosen, they range from journalists, Chavez' family, the great Mexican writer, José Agustín, to box promoters, even the former president and most famous Mexican political villain, Carlos Salinas de Gortari makes an appearance, and of course, there's the appearance of Chavez himself. All of the Mexican people interviewed in the film, fit in the archetype of Mexican boxers, politicians, etc. and they are often hilarious, just like we Mexicans tend to be. The film as a whole, is a great portrayal of Mexico through Julio César Chávez, the greatest boxer the world has known. I highly recommend this film to anyone who likes the documentary genre, the only regrettable aspect about this film is the fact that it's a bit short, but it's most definitely worth while, since it will make you understand this great man's life, it will make you laugh quite often, and remember (if you're Mexican) those golden years in which we thought the country just couldn't be better.
