The Dancer Upstairs Reviews
Most memorable quote: " The soldiers rape every woman in the villages; it's not a revolution; it's a fuckaton"
Good performances by Javier Bardem and Laura Morante in the lead roles.
Only big negative is with the production quality - sound level is quite low.
Plot: I understood a little, so, here is the thing...Augistin and Sucre are investigating some dog murders that end up with some large posters with something written on it, defending a goverment they think is the most loyal to keep on going and follow. Who is the one behind this murders, that includes childrens? Watch the film. Is not interesting, since real life is like this in everything, but defenetly, I'm kind of glad I live in the Caribbean, and not in South America or any part of the planet with guerrillas or soldiers.
Acting: Javier Bardem did an amazing job as Augustin Rejas. Of all the movies of him, this role is the BEST. He was defenetly transformed and magnific. Same Juan as Sucre. Laura as Yolanda was incredible and stunning. She nailed her role too. The rest of the cast did amazing also, so, stars for all of them.
Music: I think this was the most missing part on the whole film. No stars for that, sorry musicians.
To end this review, is not bad, nor good, is REGULAR. 2 & a half stars of 5. Enjoy and HASTA LA PROXIMA AMIGOS/AS! CHAO! BLESS YOU ALL ALWAYS!!!
