Not much of a plot here except boy leaves Kansas to become a member of a Mariachi band. The music is OK but the movie really dragged as half of it seemed to be nothing but Maraiachi music. Weak romance subplot. If all you want to see is Shawn Ashmore play Mariachi, this is your movie.
Saw this film at a Film Festival. I really liked it. They made a large mexican chaotic city look small and charming. The cinematography is fantastic and shows the part of mexico that is still there. There just seems to be a bit of a probem with the editing. I think 15 more minutes of film would of help at the beggining and near the end that would make this feel smooth. Either way...great film 4.5 stars!
