      Audience Member What a great film. I loved it and have watched it 3 times. The plot is great and the manager, Prince Orsini, is a jewel to watch. The girlfriend of the challenger is subtly outstanding in her role. SEE THIS FILM Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member Very very very good :) Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review jesse o Quite a good movie with a solid performance from Gary Piquer. It's got a great soundtrack and great cinematography and some funny moments but the movie lacks focus. I'm not sure what the movie wanted to do half the time, even if I did enjoy it, and I don't think they milk the relationship between Jacob and Prince as much as they could. But it's a well made movie, not particularly memorable in any way but definitely good. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Good, not great, take on attempting to hustle the rubes when you're well beyond your glory days and things just don't go as smoothly as they ought. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a strange little Uruguayan film about a con artist and a washed up body-builder/wrestler who go around small towns in South America for shows and fights. For a film about a wrestler, there's surprisingly very little wrestling. The film is well-made and the performances are good but the tone is all over the place resulting in a film that's kind of a headscratcher for me. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Great inspiring film. It makes me wonder about when you have so man problems to achieve something, that you forget that the answer lies sometimes in the tool.
