Apache: perfection and extraordinary 8/10
16 October 2020 | by saadanathanSee all my reviews

"Apache" is an extraordinary mini series that retells the early life of footballer Carlos Tevez. How he got his burns on his body, the miserable poor life he went through with his family, the frightening moments at night and the moments he shined on the field and became a legend at boca. The series mostly focuses on the life he went through as a child with his family, how they lived in one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in Argentina. This series shows an overview of the situation in Fuerte Apache and how the characters face the crime and violence in the streets. The story of Carlos Tevez is a really tragic one when you look at it in a certain point: he used to have a pretty normal daily basis, once the story advances things start to change in his life: his uncle gets shot, his family is in danger, his girlfriend leaves to a different city, he loses his best friend and faces his real mother who left him behind. Sure, he is accepted to Boca Juniors and then to the U-21 squad of Argentina's national football team. Be he grows up faster and becomes more mature, he faces many changes along the way. Now, of course the series needs to have a little more drama so they give the audience some action scenes, I'm pretty sure many of the characters shown are fictional and made only for dramatization. Either way their story is tragic as well: Danilo's arc was really emotional, from a young boy with a lot of potential in football to a boy who succumbs to drugs and revenge, such a tragic tale that is portrayed fabulously. All in all, Apache is a great series that shows how much life is unfair and complex. How people like Carlos Tevez needed to work hard to get out of their neighborhoods and leave a lot behind. I hope to see more series or movies such as this one who talk about football of course, but also tell a wonderful and heartbreaking story.
