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
endearing Spanish film focusing more on human relationships rather than just the "oso" culture in Madrid..ending was a bit abrupt and leaves the viewer hanging so 4 out of 5
It was decent but it was kind of more serious than I expected and I thought it was a bit over messagey and preachy.
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.
