Un mundo maravilloso (2006)
The worst movie for your money.
I went to the premiere in Mexico City of this movie, and became astonished how the public and private money can finance a movie about criticize the government without any kind of humor, sense or pride. The movie is portrayed in the 50's-style, but in a way is no 50's, 60's or any moment of Mexican recent history the spectator can recognize at all. The poor in Mexico aren't that poorer as in the movie, the riches aren't that rich as in the movie and the politicians aren't that stupid and corrupt as in the movie; in resume: The movie doesn't match with the "real" reality of my country, even if the director wants to make ironies about it.
In a general way, the movie is barely OK, no good photography, no good sound, some of the camera planes are just enough good to keep the actors in the focus. Speaking of actors..., the same as in the last 10 or 15 years on every Mexican movie (Haza, Suárez, Ochoa), because of the lack of new talent. You can see Cecilia Suárez skinny as a broomstick because her bulimia, Jesús Ochoa battling to keep the audience's interest in his role (the ONLY GOOD ONE in the movie), Plutarco Haza wasted in a role written for a less talented actor. If you saw "La Ley de Herodes" from the same director (7 years ago), the plot, the actors, the gags and the storyline is the same, the actors play similar roles in the two movies, and the director can't crush their skills to save his picture. Some of the actors (I want to think the fault of the director) seem like robots, saying their parliaments as parrots and stand moveless as a part of the set.
I encourage you the people in other countries, not to see this movie as "the truth of the Mexican reality", which is not. My Mexico isn't as portrayed in the movie, because we the REAL mexicans still struggling to get out of the poorness with our work and study. No way that the country has the level of stupidity, poorness and corruption this movie depicts.
