News & Interviews for Cachorro
Critic Reviews for Cachorro
Thoroughly likable, it never resorts to sentimental cliches or moralistic epiphanies.
Suddenly this careful and patient movie turns cheap and hasty, with unexpected disclosures, desperate curveballs, and crocodile tears. It's not ruinous, but it's not good either.
Albaladejo takes a warm approach to his characters, from Pedro's boisterous circle of like-minded gay pals (known as 'bears' for their stocky builds and facial hair) to Bernardo's paternal grandmother.
It turns into a subtle character study that both gay and straight audiences will find moving.
Had the story had more oomph to it, its stance would have seemed a lot more important as an artistic issue. But as things sit, it's an abstract plus indeed.
Audience Reviews for Cachorro
Really liked this bear culture movie. A bit dissappointed that gay movies have to alway include aids into everything. But there were some very wonderful moments within.
this movie is about a guy who is a gay bear. bears in the gay community is someone who is often overweight and has a lot of natural hair. to tell you the truth, those gay bear types have always scared me, but we all have to overcome our phobias sonner or later, right?
well this film is in that funny spanish (i think its called castilian). any film in castilian has its characters sounding really fruity, so i couldnt take this film seriously. it seems motivated by political correctness, but very good acting pervades it. it is light hearted even though some serious taboo-shattering themes are at hand.
I enjoyed this immensely. Another movie that expands the definition of what a family is. I did find the ending a little abrupt but certainly worth watching.
