Did You Know?


Rodrigo Romero, the protagonist of the film, is not a professional actor; he instead worked as a bricklayer. He got to know about the casting for the film through Facebook and, being a big fan of "El Potro", sent his photo to the filmmakers. He couldn't believe it when he was chosen for the lead character.

Mediocre at best
19 January 2019 | by darkhorizon72See all my reviews

The life of Rodrigo Bueno, while not precisely special, was at least interesting. This movie is neither. It feels cheap, rushed and more like a sunday soap opera. There is no depth in the characters, many important aspects of his psychological makeup are ignored and the end result is just a wikipedia article turned into images. All acting is mediocre and there was no effort made to depict the sweat, the noise, the passion and the voracious crowd at every live presentation. Not a good tribute to "el Potro".
