I’m interested in mainstream foreign cinema. What translates? What reveals? Here’s a transformative-power-of-Fatherhood flick. It’s kinda Big Daddy-esque. Acapulco playboy stuffed with sun. Baby on the stoop. He jumps from cliffs, he sneaks into the states. He has a custody battle, he’s haunted by wolves. There’s a Johnny Depp impersonator & some weirdly timed poop jokes. The colors are candy bright. The twist has some chutzpah but ultimately contributes to an overarching feeling of artifice that left me feeling deadened & (I think) the wrong kind of sad when I should have been moved. But y’know, my favorite movie’s The Holy Mountain so my opinions are likely very different from yours.
