  • While everything looks fabulous and the narrative - based on the novel by Angeles Mastretta - is engaging to a point, there's a sense that we're only getting part of the story.

Audience Reviews for Arráncame la vida (Tear This Heart Out)

    First off, I'm not a fan of Ana Claudia Talancón and have always believed she has little (no) talent, so it was hard for me to follow her character throughout the movie. Then, the story seemed to compress too much in too quickly and didn't flesh out and almost everything seemed to happen just because. It does have nice costumes, a very good performance by José María de Tavira, it's surprisingly (intentionally, that's the surprise) funny and does have some very beautiful scenes.

    Lately, there haven't been a lot of Mexican films worthy of bragging about, but thankfully, ARRANCAME LA VIDA is here to fix that. The most expensive film in the history of Mexican cinema, and one of the best of the last decade, this amazing period piece is very close to becoming a classic. The music, costumes and visual elements are exquisite. The script is sharp, and it's also very funny when it has to. Which brings me to the highlight of the film, one of my favorite actors, Daniel Gimenez Cacho. His performance is great, successfully blending General Ascencio's charismatic exterior with his shady, mean personality. Ana Claudia Talancón is stunningly beautiful and also gives a strong performance. Her transition from naive teenager to a powerful woman is very convincing. The style of the film reminded me a little of another favorite film of mine, Atonement.

    Excelen adaptation of the book by Angeles Mastretta. It's the best mexican movie I've seen in quite a few months (last one being <i>La Ley de Herodes</i>, but that's a whole different movie). The movie didn't altered the original story, but kinda cut off many subplots. Daniel Gimenez Cacho gave a hell of an interpretation, and the whole ambientation and production is excellent.
