‘¡Que viva México!’ (2023). Movie on Netflix. Review: A Parody With… Style


¡Que viva México! is a film directed by Luis Estrada starring Damián Alcázar, Alfonso Herrera, Joaquín Cosío and Ana Martín.

A Mexican comedy about Mexico that takes life, tradition, family, the political system, customs and seriousness itself… as a joke.

A comedy that knows that comedy -or a certain kind of comedy- is based on stereotypes and plays with them in a healthy and even intelligent way.

It will have, for sure, its detractors, but you won’t find us among them.

Movie review

A comedy about the rich and the poor, mariachis, drunks, cheap brothels, yellowed walls, and mold everywhere. Between bad taste for some, intelligent provocation for others and, for others (for sure) stupidity.

It is a combination of (Mexican) humor that laughs at all the Mexican clichés and makes this encounter between two parallel universes an enriching experience that leaves no one indifferent.

You may like it or not, it may even be funny or not, depending on how “uptight” you are, but ¡Que viva México! has the grace of, without complexes, indulging in the comedy of clichés and, apparently, not getting serious at any time, explaining with humor a culture and a way of understanding humor.

It is not stilted, it is very good cinematographically, it is a comedy of manners with all the good and the bad.

Funny? Too long? We’ll leave it up to you to decide, but we had a fun time with this film that, for once, we will remember.
