Gueros (Mexican with English Subtitles)

Two young men, Sombra and Santos, are in college writing their theses; however, the university has been taken over by protesting students, and they have no classes. The both seem to be a couple of slackers, not really sure how to fill their days while there is no school. Tomas, the brother of Sombra, shows up one evening at their apartment. He gets into trouble a lot, and his mother can’t manage him any longer and sent Tomas away to spend time with his brother. Once there, he convinces them to help find a singer who has special meaning for both brothers. I found the film fascinating. It is shot completely in black and white, and it has a similar feel to some of the French New Wave films of the 60’s. The plot appears then disappears as the characters amble their way through the journey and find meaning in their lives. Thumbs up from me for a movie that is probably more about the feeling than the actual story. (2015; 4 stars)
