Audience Reviews for The Student (El estudiante)

El Estudiante An amazing heart warming film, would have been better if it just wasn't so bubbly and exaggerated. The movie has a lesson for everyone, some may cry, some may laugh, its an amazing movie that would warm your heart and the entire family, with a message and quotes to be carried for life by each member of the audience. The only bad thing this movie had, was at points its emotions were seen to be to forced and exaggerated, so making them somehow superficial In general amazing acting, maybe Mexico's best movie ever! Be prepared it would blow your mind, and cuddle with your heart, and when it does it, you will know thats what good cinema can do to you.

This is the kind of movie that kills off a character not because the character is ill, not because it advances the plot or because it matters, it just does it so you have something to cry about, because if you don't cry, how will you know the movie was good? This is also the kind of movie that doesn't have dialogues and instead of speaking like real people, they all seem to spit this big, heartfelt speaches at every single moment; it is utterly ridiculous.
