GOOD GOOD GOOD GOOD GOOD movie! Loved the ending! Loved the movie! Be aware - if you are not comfortable with nudity and obvious sex scenes, then you need not watch this movie. Or get over yourself and watch a movie with a fun little plot twist at the end.

Cumbia callera

"I saw this on HBO a few weeks ago and just totally loved it. The story is simple and actors great (the girl's very appealing) But the music is the greatest! I had never heard of Cumbia anything until I watched that movie. My usual music is far from that...but I am hooked. If you like foreign movies and like something entertaining don't miss Cumbia Callera!
One thing- the subtitles are yellow. My complaint is only eyestrain
Worth Viewing!

"Like the other reviewer, I too just saw this movie on "cable". I couldn't find anything else to watch and so decided to try this. I'm very glad I did.

This is a simple movie. It centers around a love triangle involving two young men and a young lady.

Basically, boy "B" is a videographer that stumbles onto the couple of boy "A" and the girl. He is immediately captivated by the girl and falls in love with her. He "stalks" her, films her and loves her from afar even though he can see she is involved with boy "A". Finally he makes contact and she responds to his advances. She is flattered by his advances but still cares for boy "B".

The female lead is not beautiful (compared to Salma Hayek)however she is captivating. It is easy to see how boy "B" falls for her the first second he sees her. She is fascinated by boy "B" who is the sensitive, caring, "all attention" paying type which is totally opposite of boy "A" who is a macho male that thinks first with his emotions and hands and almost never his head.

She has a decision to make but she really wants to have it both ways.

I really didn't thrill to the music but enjoyed the movie anyway. Unless you speak better spanish that I do, you'll have to live with the subtitles but it's okay. Dialogue is minimal.

The female lead makes the movie believable. She doesn't just captivate boy "B", she'll captivate you. You will easily understand why boy "B" is so hopelessly under her spell.

So watch this movie. Enjoy the ending.

Note to the prudish: there is a fair amount of nudity and graphic sex."
Good artistic foreign film

"Not much in the way of dialogue in this film. It's sort of like a musical, Latin-style. The girl is some nice eye candy, very sexy. It's a love triangle between a girl and two guys. A lot of nudity and sex, but tastefully, passionately done. The movie was really very well done from a cinematic standpoint. Set in Monterrey, Mexico."
