El Viaje de la Nonna (Nonna's Trip) Reviews
Aunque el viaje de la nonna resulte algo ñoña, en especial en cuanto a la premisa de la historia, tiene sus buenos momentos tanto para reír como para sacar la lágrima.
Starring: Ana Ofelia Murguía, Verónica Langer, Rodrigo Murray
Before I start, i just wanna say that I won't criticized the cast by every single head for I don't know who in the earth they are.
Right, simple, cheap, a little bit refreshing with a nice story and decently executed by one of James Cameron former assistant, Sebastian Silva in some part, while in some the other poorly executed. Although in some part it's poorly executed, the comedy and some characters were enough to save this movie. At least this movie came back home with some appreciation.
volare oO cantare oooOâ?ª LOL
Con un elenco realmente maravilloso, El Viaje de la Nonna es la nueva comedia mexicana familiar que hara pasar un buen rato en sus asientos. Una pelicula sincera y bien actuada, que no tiene mucho de maravilla en cuanto a la produccion, pero que gozas y que acabas queriendola. Algo lindo, muy lindo.
So, as their mother/grandmother reaches her 85th birthday, the family decide to try and grant her wish to visit Italy: they recreate a small Italian village right there in around Mexico City...since they seem to be concerned about her health and well-being, they'd rather not do a trip to Italy and instead use one of the grandson's talent, who's a filmmaker, to plan a fake family outing to their father/grandfather's birth home in Italy. Of course it's riddled with problems though they bank on nonna's bad memory to easily trick her into thinking she really is in Europe, while they film the whole experience. The concept kinda works, but is a little silly, IMHO, that really all in family agree to this big lie (granted there is some dissent), and probably end up spending more time and effort on this deception rather than a real trip to Italy (which one of the characters does point out thankfully). I had problems with how silly it got with the badly spoken Italian (which was intentional though it annoyed me that there wasn't a bit more proper use of it within the family) by some of the actors playing Italian villagers, and that the nonna wouldn't have been more observant of the facade and consequently pissed off about the whole mess....way too light-hearted for the moral implications. And it only got worse when the family had to continue with more lies after the trip was over.
However, the ending to this film was great, as the lie was exposed by the family friends taking the moral highground, reinforcing the fact that even though nonna did come to realize something was not right, that it didn't matter, the whole "trip" in fact united the family into really going out of their way for her....that they, as a family, spent quality time together, even if it was all a fabrication. All via a video recording. The last 1/2 hour was 5 stars, the rest of the movie was 2 1/2-3 stars.
diiivertidisima tienen que verla !!
