Writer director Carlos Cuarón (brother of Alfonso) has created characters that are so real you can almost hear their thoughts. Tato and Beto are filled with contradictions, faults, quirks and foibles, yet we like them and want them to succeed
He's helped by charismatic, pleasingly ambivalent performances by all involved, and while a later penalty sequence is needlessly prolonged, it doesn't diminish the film's cumulative effect. Serious fun.
Not as obviously delightful as Y tu mamá también, Rudo y Cursi is never less than enjoyable, helped by charismatic playing between two stars constantly calling each other "pendejo" and some gorgeous camera work from Adam Kimmel.
It's a tale of two humble Mexican boys filmed with rough-around-the-edges production values and lots of energy, whose appeal will stretch to footie fans who wouldn't normally park themselves in front of a subtitled film.
