Recently Watched: Rudo y Cursi

Rudo y Cursi is a comedy that explores the relationship between brothers on dueling soccer teams. The film also shows the popularity of soccer in Mexico City, as well as the corrupt business side of the game. I wanted to see this movie because I loved Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna in Y Tu Mama Tambien together.

I think that they were perfectly cast as brothers in the film--pulling off the strong love/hate sibling relationship. Bernal plays the younger brother who wants to be a singer, and Luna plays the older/angrier brother who wants to be a soccer goalie. Throughout the film the brothers are pitted against each other by their manager who is using them for $$$. (FUCK THAT SHIT)

The film made me want to check out more modern Spanish films because its been awhiiile.
