5.0 out of 5 stars CHEESY, SOAPY, I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!, December 14, 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Mi Querido Viejo (DVD)
This film has a sort of grainy picture quality and it is teary and soapy! I LOVE IT! I love the way every dramatic scene is accompanied by the CHEESY organ music! And Vicente has a flair for comedy, there are several "charming" scenes...Vicente delivering the baby in the car, the puppet scene, the bunny scene!
The best reason to watch this DVD, of course, is to see the interaction between father and son Mexican superstars, Vicente and Alejandro Fernandez. Alejandro is SO young here, but he is SO beautiful, and sings like a god! The VOICE is incredible.
There are two songs in this film that I ADORE...."TIEMPO"...and "EL ANDARIEGO". I have not found Alejandro's version of Tiempo anywhere else....I have a cd of boleros by Vicente that include this song. (Actually, if you listen to Vicente sing it, you would almost think it was Alejandro)
The last scene is the reason that I bought the film in the first place....I wanted to see father and son sing TOGETHER! The last song is "Cuando Yo Queria Ser Grande"...this song is on Alejandro's first album....it is also one that he sings on tour with his dad. To see that beautiful face streaked with tears...father's hand reaching up to touch his son's face...the little wink (they BOTH do it)...it was worth every penny to see this!
My only disappointment with the DVD was that I had hoped it would have a language option...I know only limited Spanish, and the film does not have sub-titles. You don't really need to know what is being said to understand what is going on, its pretty obvious.
The DVD has an extra biography of Vicente not found on the VHS version...however, this too is in Spanish. Still, it is interesting to watch.
