Güeros

dirección Alonso Ruiz Palacios ; guión Alonso Ruiz Palacios, Gibrán Portela
« The indie movie’s title is Mexican slang for those with light skin, such as the middle-class protagonists featured. It's set in 1999, in Mexico City, when the students rebel against the university. It opens in the coastal city of Vera Cruz, as the light-skinned 13-year-old Tomás has dropped a water balloon from his rooftop onto the head of a passing stranger. His dark-skinned mom thereby sends the troubled kid to Mexico City to live with his more mature university student older brother Sombra. Sombra is a withdrawn scholar, who refuses to aid his fellow students in their demonstrations against the school administration. He lives in a filthy high-rise apartment with his roommate, Santos. Ana is the politically committed to the student cause radio DJ Tomás has a futile crush on, as he welcomes the protest movement with open arms to impress her. These three are all gueros and are curious about the legendary (fictional) Bob Dylan-like  protest singer Epigmenio Cruz of the 1960s, who has mysteriously vanished. His music was soothing to Tomás as a child.The melodrama turns into a road movie, as during the student strike the foursome of Ana, the roommates and the brothers, drive aimlessly around at a leisurely pace hoping to track down the reclusive legend. » Réservation en ligne
