Mexican Movies and How They're Made: Elvira.
9 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

First of all, if you haven't seen this movie, you're making a huge mistake. This new film, from Mexican director, writer, and producer Manolo Caro, will make you believe again in the future of Mexican Cinema. Maybe I'm overreacting a little, but let me explain myself.

Cecilia Suárez's performance is astounding, revealing once again her capability of making us live through her emotions on screen, and proving us why she is the best choice for the lead role. And not only Cecilia's given an amazing performance, but also every performer in this movie, Mexican actors and actresses who have worked their way in this industry over the years.

This entire movie is filled with the drama Elvira is living, combined with the dark comedy Mexican audiences are used to. Something I find really interesting of Manolo Caro's works, is the power he has over his cast. As a director, Manolo manages to bring out the very best of every character, making it easy for the audience to feel somehow related and identified to the situations that the character goes through, not only in this film but also in his previous productions, such as "No sé si cortarme las venas o dejármelas largas" (2013), and "Amor de mis amores" (2014).

As I said earlier in this review, Mexican Cinema is not dead, neither is going through any kind of decline or decay, the Mexican Cinema is growing and building itself up. This film, and Manolo Caro are proof of it.
