Critic Reviews for Morirse esta en Hebreo (My Mexican Shivah)
My Mexican Shivah kvetches its way through an insipid vision of cross-cultural conflict.
Despite wacky klezmer music on the soundtrack, nothing terribly amusing or unpredictable happens.
Who needs subtitles when you can speak the universal language of stereotypes?
Repurposing clichÃ©s as springboards to deeper issues...[director Springall] reminds us that ritual can ease reconciliation, and that sometimes even meat and dairy can get along.
Alejandro Springall's My Mexican Shivah is another of the recent examples of the Jewish Diaspora absorbed in the preservation of its identity and its rituals in countries around the world.
Audience Reviews for Morirse esta en Hebreo (My Mexican Shivah)
If you want to watch a highly funny movie, well this is the wrong one. The story is not bad, but maybe it would have worked more as a drama..... You want a movie about a dysfunctional jewish mexican family Cinco Dias Sin Nora (Nora's Will) is a lot better!!
Okay, *I* thought it was funny. I'll have to show it to some non-Jewish friends to see if they think it's funny. I would have thought one didn't need to be Jewish to see the humor, but judging from the other reviews, maybe not.
It was a nice try, but they didn't quite pull it off. The actors were all terrible, and the script wasn't very good. Occasional laughs, good direction and cinematography save this film from being a total mess.
